60. Captain CRAIG
asked whether Mrs. Walker has been appointed head lady inspector in Ireland under the National Insurance Act; and, if so, whether the right hon. Gentleman will state the nature of Mrs. Walker's qualifications for the post?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
Mrs. N. II. Walker has been appointed to the post of Woman Inspector in Ireland. She was selected by the Irish Commission after careful consideration of her qualifications, and, having regard to her wide knowledge of Irish life and social conditions, as the most suitable of the candidates for the post.
May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether the only qualification this lady had was that she acted as typist for the hon. Member for the Scotland Division of Liverpool?
