HC Deb 06 April 1911 vol 23 c2429

asked why young men of inexperience in the Inland Revenue have received great increases in salary by promotion to positions of the work of which they have had but slight knowledge, seeing that they have been promoted over the heads of experienced men of twenty-five to thirty years of service, who have to supply the technical knowledge these specially promoted men lack, and that the promotion of the older men would have meant a considerable saving to the Revenue?


Promotions in the Inland Revenue Department are made on merit, and I am unable to accept the assumption contained in the hon. Member's question.
