HC Deb 27 March 1911 vol 23 c1097W

asked the Home Secretary whether in the appointment of labour adviser it was stipulated that he should assist in the State insurance schemes to be worked through the Labour Exchanges; and whether, in appointing a junior labour adviser, he will require the qualification of previous insurance experience?


No such stipulation has been made. The questions of invalidity and unemployment insurance do not fall within the jurisdiction of the Home Office. I am always glad that the officers of the Home Office should co-operate in the work of other Departments; but I cannot make their selection depend on qualifications required in other Departments, and not in the Home Office.
