HC Deb 26 March 1914 vol 60 cc541-2
38. Mr. F. HALL

asked if the hon. Member's attention has been called to the statement that the son of a Nonconformist minister, who failed to pass the examination for the second division of the Civil Service, has nevertheless been given an appointment; if he will give particulars of the case in question; and state whether the appointment was given on the intitiative of the Civil Service Commissioners themselves?


No, Sir, nor can I identify the case to which the hon. Member refers.


If I give the hon. Gentleman the information, will he look into the case?


As soon as this question was put down on the Paper I consulted the Commissioners, and they informed me that they could not possibly trace the case. If the hon. Member has any further information, perhaps he will communicate with me.
