§ MR. FERRAND
said, he rose to repeat the question which he had put on a former occasion as to the intention of the Government to fill up the office of Inspector of Charities, vacant by the death of Mr. J. Simons, jun.
MR. H. A. BRUCE
said, in reply, that the Commissioners of Charities had considered the subject, and had come to the conclusion that the present state of the business of the Office did not enable them to reduce the number of Inspectors. The noble Lord at the head of the Government had therefore appointed Mr. Good, who had been chief clerk of the Office for ten years, whose special knowledge of the business of the Commission and whose other qualifications justified the expectation that he would fill the office of Inspector of Charities with efficiency.
