§ 34. Lieut.-Colonel Sir J. GRIFFITHS
asked the Attorney-General whether there is any intention to replace or discharge existing necessary employés in the Public Trustee Office with the object of appointing younger men at a reduced salary; and, if so, will care be taken to retain those of approved ability, irrespective of age, while carrying out their duties in an efficient manner?
§ The ATTORNEY GENERAL (Sir Gordon Hewart)
I understand that there-is no intention to replace or discharge existing employés in the Public Trustee Office with the object of appointing younger men at reduced salaries. In the Public Trustee Office, as in other offices, some appointments were made during the War on a temporary footing. The claims and qualifications of any person so appointed will be considered for permanent appointment in common with those of discharged soldiers and persons from the Treasury Pool.
