Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasury

Thomas Edward Taylor, Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasury from 1866 to 1868.

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasury is a junior ministerial position in the British Government. However, the office is now attached to the Treasury in name only. The holder is usually the Government Chief Whip in the House of Commons. The office can be seen as a sinecure, allowing the Chief Whip to draw a government salary, attend Cabinet, and use a Downing Street residence.
