HC Deb 03 November 1902 vol 113 c1403

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the Poor Law Association of Ireland have sent resolutions to the Local Government Board asking to have inspectors and auditors appointed in future from members of the Poor Law Service; and whether the request contained in these resolutions has been complied with.


Such resolutions have been passed. In filling vacancies on its staff, the Board proceeds on the principle of selecting the persons whom it considers best qualified for these positions.


Is the Poor Law Service to be the only service in which promotions are not given to the officials?

[No answer was returned.]
