§ Mr. BRIANT
asked the Minister of Health if, during the last 12 months, any guardians or ex-guardians have been appointed by boards of guardians to positions as relieving officers or temporary relieving officers; and if he has satisfied himself in every case that there were not other applicants for the positions who had greater experience of and qualifications for the work involved?
§ Sir A. MOND
I am aware of only two such cases, and in both instances I have pointed out to the guardians the objections to such appointments. My approval is not required, however, to the appointments of individual officers.
