§ 40. Mr. BRIANT
asked the Home Secretary if the qualifications for the position of inspector of reformatory and industrial schools exclude all who are not graduates of a university; and, if so, whether, considering that many of those with most experience in work among boys have not attended a university, the positions will be thrown open to all who have the essential qualifications?
§ Mr. SHORTT
The appointment in question is not restricted to University 1480 graduates, but on the occasion of a recent vacancy, as it was important to obtain a well-educated man, candidates were invited by advertisement who were graduates of a University and had served in H.M. Forces during the War. There is no difficulty in finding University candidates who have experience of social work among boys.
§ Mr. BRIANT
Has the right hon. Gentleman considered that a person may be well educated who has not been to a university?
