HC Deb 18 July 1910 vol 19 cc851-2

asked what is the total number of persons, not at the time of appointment in permanent Government employment, who have been appointed since January, 1906, to positions in his Department with salaries exceeding £100 a year, and who did not previously to their appointment pass an examination by the Civil Service Commissioners; and what is the total annual amount of their salaries?


There was one appointment without examination in 1906, and there were five in 1908. The commencing salaries amount in the aggregate to £4,200. In all these cases a certificate was issued by the Civil Service Commissioners under Clause VII. of the Order in Council of 4th June, 1870, which provides that a certificate may be granted without examination if the head of the Department and the Treasury consider that the qualifications required for the situation are wholly or in part profes- sional or otherwise peculiar, and not ordinarily to be acquired in the Civil Service.


Does this cover the appointments under the various inspectorates?


Yes, I understand so.
