24. Mr. F. HALL (Dulwich)
asked how many persons have been appointed to permanent positions in the Civil Service in connection with the working of the Labour Exchanges, Land Valuation, and National Insurance Acts, respectively; in how many cases it has been necessary to dispense with the services of such persons, or to ask for their resignations, on the ground of inefficiency or unsuitability; and whether all such persons have been called upon to undergo the same examination for medical and physical fitness as those entering the service by examination in the ordinary way?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Montagu)
As regards the Land Valuation Department, I will give the hon. Member the information which he requires if he will give me sufficient notice to enable me to get it for him. As regards the rest of the question, he should address himself to my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade and to my hon. Friend the Member for St. George's-in-the-East.
