HC Deb 15 May 1912 vol 38 cc1123-4

asked what is the limit of age for appointments to the Civil Service; and if there is any special limitation in the case of appointments of inspectors to the English and Scotch Board of Agriculture?


The age limits for admission into the Civil Service are separately prescribed for the various grades of Civil servants. The normal age limits for established inspectors under the English Board of Agriculture are twenty-five to thirty-five, with extension to forty-five in cases of persons who have served under the Department as temporary inspectors since the age of thirty-five. No age limits have yet been prescribed for inspectors under the Scottish Board.
