HC Deb 07 August 1919 vol 119 c587W

asked the Minister of Health whether special facilities are being granted to women to qualify for the filling of a number of vacancies as house and housing inspectors at a salary of £250 per annum; and, if so, whether he will consider the desirability of extending the same facilities to ex-Service men?


No, Sir, no such facilities are being granted. The few posts that have been filled have been by the appointment of women already possessing the requisite qualifications and experience. As regards the appointment of men to such posts and the claims of ex-Service men, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given yesterday to the hon. and gallant Member for Moss Side on the point.
