HC Deb 21 February 1924 vol 169 cc1988-9W

asked the President of the Board of Education if he proposes to appoint at an early date a chief art inspector; if so, will it be one who has had experience as a teacher and administrator; and will the person appointed be elected by open competition?


This matter is receiving my consideration, and I hope soon to be in a position to take action. In making any appointment I shall do my best to secure the person who by qualifications and experience is best fitted to fill the post, and I propose in due course to notify publicly that I am prepared to receive applications.
