§ 74. Mr. SNOWDEN
asked the Home Secretary what appointments have been made to the posts of medical inspectors, under the Mental Deficiency Act; if all the persons appointed are men; at what, salaries they have been appointed; if the posts were advertised; if it is intended to appoint a woman or women medical inspectors; and, if so, at what salaries?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. McKenna)
Three such appointments have been made, all of men, at the following salaries: Chief inspector, £200, in addition to his salary as inspector under the Inebriates Act; one inspector, £500, rising to £800; one inspector, £400, rising to £600. The last two posts were advertised. It is intended to appoint a woman medical inspector, and provision is made in the Estimates for a salary of £350, rising to £550; the Board of Control has not yet secured the services of a suitable person.
§ Lord N. CRICHTON-STUART
Can the right hon. Gentleman give the names of those who are to be appointed?
§ Mr. McKENNA
I could not without notice. I shall be glad to do so if a question is put on the Paper.
