5 # Much work still remains to be done on our records
despite the attention bestowed on them by my predecessor -
and a reduction or staff now would lead to a loss of system
in maintaining records. The Record Keepers both in the
Confidential and English Offices are at present so occupied
with routine work that they have little time left in which *
to improve the state of their records#
6* In paragraphs 3 and 4 of his letter No»3664-l/53
dated the 9th September, 1945, my predecessor suggested that
when trade control was abolished one temporary post could be
retrenched while four temporary posts (two in the English
and two in the Confidential Offices) should be retained
permanently* I do not agree to the abolition of this post
and suggest that it should be retained permanently# With the
expansion of the office the work of the Accountant has
automatically greatly increased and to cope with his work
he is forced to work long hours out of office time#
Similarly the Passport Clerk is greatly overworked. I con
sider that in order that their efficiency should not be
impaired, they should be relieved of some of their present
work by this additional clerk, as soon as his other duties
will permit#
7. The Persian and Urdu censorship work, on which Mr#
M#y« Siddiqi was mai^Ly employed in the Public Relations
Office, ceased with effect from the 4th October, 1945*
This Clerk has since died and I have already recommended in
my memorandum No#1631-1/23 dated the 20th May, 1946, that
the post should be retrenched#
