§ Lieut.-Colonel ARCHER-SHEE
asked the Minister of Transport whether a county surveyor is still employed by the Ministry of Transport as deputy to Sir H. Maybury, drawing a salary from both appointments; and whether, in view of the number of qualified ex-Service men who would be glad of one of these positions, he will see that the policy of allowing an official to hold two appointments shall be terminated forthwith?
§ Mr. NEAL
The position of deputy to the Director-General of Roads has been offered to the chief enigneer of the Hertfordshire County Council, who was lent by the council to the Road Board during the War. So soon as the appointment as deputy is completed he will vacate his position under the county council. He has at no time been drawing any salary from the Road Board or the Ministry of Transport.
