§ MR. TENNANT (Berwickshire)
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when it is proposed to appoint a Prison Commissioner in the room of Lieut.-Col. Garsia; and whether, in the selection of Colonel Garsia's successor, special regard will be had to experience in the Prison Department.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Akers Douglas.) I propose to submit an appointment for the King's approval in due course; and the hon. Member may rest assured that before doing so I shall give due weight to all proper considerations.
