HC Deb 29 May 1913 vol 53 cc312-3
34. Mr. CAWLEY

asked whether, in view of the appointment as clerk to the Lancashire Insurance Committee of a gentleman already filling several other important public offices, for which he receives several thousand pounds a year, he will suggest to the Insurance Commissioners the advisability of issuing a circular to the insurance committees pointing out that these posts ought to be given to men who are able to devote adequate time to the duties for which they are paid?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which I gave to the hon. Member for Barrow-in-Furness on the 30th April. The selection of the clerk to an insurance committee is entirely a matter for the local insurance committee itself, and the Commission has no power to interfere in the matter.
