16. Lieut.-Colonel WATTS-MORGAN
asked the Minister of Pensions what was the number of appointments made at salaries of £400 a year and upwards in the Ministry of Pensions during the years 1920, 1921, 1922 and 1923, respectively; in what branches were the appointments made; and what were the number of clerks in Grades I, II and III dismissed in the same years?
The fluctuations in the amount of bonus payable, the changes in administration brought about by the War Pensions Act, 1921, alterations in organisation, and the substitution of men for women, render it difficult, without considerable research, to furnish my hon. and gallant Friend with the figures asked for, which, even if they could be readily supplied, would not give a reliable aspect of the position for the periods mentioned.
Will the right hon. Gentleman kindly reply to the last part of the question, as to the number of clerks in Grades I, II and III that were dismissed?
As I have indicated, considerable research would be required for that. If my hon. and gallant Friend persists in the point, it shall be done.
17. Lieut.-Colonel WATTS-MORGAN

§ Every care is taken to ensure that medical officers in receipt of pensions of this kind are not, other things being equal, being retained in preference to officers not in receipt of such pensions: but it will be understood that officers in this position have had administrative and medical experience of a kind to make their services particularly valuable to the Ministry.
