HC Deb 21 June 1920 vol 130 c1778W

asked the Minister of Transport whether it is intended to appoint a transport officer for agricultural work who will act in conjunction with the Ministry of Transport and the Board of Agriculture; whether this appointment will be open to other than ex-service men; and whether, in view of the fact that there are many ex-service men with agricultural college diplomas who had experience in transport work during the War, are still unemployed, and are eminently qualified for such a post, he will rule that such men should have a preference in the event of such an appointment being made?


No special appointment of the nature referred to is contemplated. The Ministry of Agriculture and this Ministry are constantly co-operating together in matters in which both are interested.
