HC Deb 30 April 1925 vol 183 cc296-7

asked the Minister of Pensions what proportion of chief area officers and deputy chief area officers will receive permanent appointments; and whether, seeing that special qualifications are necessary for the successful filling of these posts, such officers who receive permanent appointments will carry their present rates of pay, as will be the case with the medical officers of the Ministry who have or are about to receive permanent appointments?


The question as to the number of temporary salaried officials, including chief area officers and deputy chief area officers, to whom it may be possible to give permanent non-pensionable posts is at present engaging my attention. The officers selected to fill such appointments would continue to be paid their existing salary as adjusted from time to time, in accordance with the rules of the public service, but the salary would be subject to revision either up or down in accordance with that appropriate to the post in which they may from time to time be employed.
