§ Mr. WATT
asked whether examinations for clerkships to surveyors of taxes are still being held throughout the country; whether each candidate is charged 10s. for the privilege of sitting at these examinations; whether there is already a long list of men who have passed such examinations for whom there are no appointments; and, if so, whether he will instruct that this practice of examining and charging will be discontinued meantime?
§ Mr. HOBHOUSE
No examination for clerkships to surveyors of taxes are being held as suggested by the hon. Member, and consequently the remainder of the question does not arise.
