I am afraid that I shall be unable to give the hon. gentleman the information which he desires in detail, as his question is a very comprehensive one. Perhaps it would be sufficient if I indicated in general terms where the information may be found, because that which is available is already in possession of the House. The number of the civil service, the officials in each department, their classification, their salaries and their names are all set forth in detail in the civil service list. The hours of duty are from half-past nine to four o'clock, but, of course, it is expected that, when necessary, officials will work later, and many of them do. I am not aware whether there are some who work the long hours mentioned by the hon, gentleman, fifteen hours ; it is quite possible ; but I should say that if that takes place it is exceptional and in emergencies. I thought the privilege of these long hours was only restricted to cabinet ministers.
