HC Deb 13 March 1924 vol 170 c2538
53. Mr. HAYES

asked the Home Secretary whether future appointments of prison governors and deputy prison governors will be confined to applicants who have gained experience by passing through the lower grades of the service?


With every desire to provide the fullest opportunities for the promotion of deserving officers from the lower ranks, I do not think that such a rule as my hon. Friend suggests could be justified.
