HC Deb 22 July 1909 vol 8 cc747-8W

asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty whether Mr. Larden, who was recently deprived of his mastership at the Royal Naval Engineering College at Devonport, in consequence of the winding-up of the college, was offered employment in any other Department, in accordance with the Resolution of the House of Commons of 12th June, 1888, which directs that in any future reorganisations officials who are still able and willing to render service for the public money shall be provided with employment in other Departments instead of being forced to become useless burdens upon the country; and, if not, will be explain why this was not done?


There was no suitable appointment for Mr. Larden under the Admiralty, and the Admiralty have no control over appointments in other Departments of State.
