HC Deb 11 February 1904 vol 129 c1038

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he will state what is the standard of qualification for appointment as Local Government Auditor; whether any examination is necessary, or whether the appointment is merely by nomination; and will he grant a Return showing the number and qualification of gentlemen appointed to this position since 1st April, 1899.


Auditors, before entering upon their duties, must satisfy the Civil Service Commissioners in respect to their qualifications, which are determined by an examination in prescribed subjects. I am sending to the hon. Member a Return containing the information mentioned in the second part of the Question.
