HC Deb 02 March 1921 vol 138 c1819W

asked the Minister of Health what progress has been made in giving effect to the promise made in his letter of 31st May, 1920, in pursuance of a previous promise of the Local Government Board to proceed with an Order to give security of tenure to whole-time medical officers and to his proposal to include sanitary inspectors and inspectors of nuisances in the Order on the same terms?


This matter has been under consideration. I am advised that legislation would be required to give security of tenure to existing officers, and the Order which will shortly be issued must therefore be confined to new appointments of the classes mentioned.
