HC Deb 15 June 1915 vol 72 cc542-3
13. Mr. JOWETT

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether he is aware that the Royal Sanitary Institute has refused to admit candidates to the meat inspectors' examination on the ground that the candidates in question did not hold the inspector of nuisances certificate; whether an exception was made in the case of Mr. Frank Knowles, the Government's meat expert; and, if an exception was made in his case, has he considered the effect of this relaxation of the Royal Sanitary Institute's rules for the benefit of a Government official on the measure of confidence which will be given in future by meat traders and the public to the decisions of the Government's meat experts?


I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given to him on this subject on the 19th May last, to which I have nothing to add.
