Lieut.-Colonel CLAUDE LOWTHER
asked the Minister of Health whether it was with his sanction that a public librarian was appointed in Dalton-in-Furness without first advertising the position, thus debarring discharged men from the Services from making application for the post?
§ Dr. ADDISON
No, Sir. No sanction or approval of the Minister of Health, or of his predecessor, the President of the Local Government Board, was required in the matter. The local authority exercises its discretion.
