§ Mr. T. GRIFFITHS
asked the Postmaster-General whether a naval officer who has had a special course in wireless telegraphy of nine weeks' duration is considered to have had the equivalent training to that of a graduate in physics or electrical engineering, as required by the terms of the advertisement of the last vacancy for an assistant inspector of wireless telegraphy?
§ Mr. KELLAWAY
The officer referred to, besides having taken the special course in wireless telegraphy, had long experience in naval wireless telegraphy and also in electrical engineering. As I have already informed the hon. Member, this officer was the best qualified candidate for the post and possesses all the necessary qualifications.
