HC Deb 31 July 1923 vol 167 c1257
37. Mr. W. GRAHAM

asked the Under-Secretary to the Scottish Board of Health whether his attention has been called to the fact that the Sutherland County Council are advertising for a fully qualified sanitary inspector for that large county, to give his whole time to the duties of the office* at the inadequate salary of £200 per annum; and whether, in the interests of public health administration, he will make representation to the County Council on the subject?

Captain ELLIOT

I am informed that the post has been advertised by the county council at a salary commencing at the figure stated. The Board propose to consider the conditions of the appointment on their merits when they have had submitted to them the qualifications of the officer proposed to be appointed by the local authority. The Board do not propose at this stage to make any representation to the county council.
