72. Mr. FRED HALL (Dulwich)
asked the Secretary to the Treasury if he will state which of the private secretaries to the Chancellor of the Exchequer who received promotion was not already a member of the permanent Civil Service; what was his employment before becoming the Chancellor's private secretary; and what was the post to which he was promoted?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
The gentleman referred to in the hon. Member's question is Mr. Rowland, who prior to his appointment as assistant private secretary in 1906 was an elementary school teacher. In January last he was appointed a Welsh Insurance Commissioner.
Mr. FRED HALL
Are the qualifications of an elementary school teacher consistent with those of a Welsh Insurance Commissioner?
