HC Deb 22 July 1912 vol 41 cc810-1

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether he can state the names, ages, former residence, qualifications, and past experience of the gentlemen selected for the senior positions of the health insurance office at Llanelly; whether he is aware that amongst the applicants were three officers from Llanelly Post Office, with services ranging from nine to eighteen years, who, in response to an invitation from the Insurance Health Commissioner, had made application; and will he say why these trained men of experience were passed over when the appointments were being made?


My hon. Friend is misinformed. The Welsh Insurance Commissioners have no offices except at Cardiff, and no appointments have been made to any positions at Llanelly. The applications for the position of inspectors and health insurance officers, which amounted to over 4,000, and included a number from Civil servants, are being carefully examined by the Commissioners.
