Mr. Sleeman's experience was in connection with land agency in British Columbia. He has no useful knowledge of quantity surveying, and it was not possible, therefore, to employ him as a quantity surveyor's clerk.
I have no information as to the reason for Mr. Wicker's assignment by the Civil Service Commission to the Post Office. As regards his non-retention in the Air Ministry, I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave on the 6th instant.
