Thirty-nine candidates were certified as assistant inspector of taxes, and one as junior assistant auditor under the Ministry of Health. One candidate was appointed as second clerk in the Metropolitan Police Courts Service. Of the remaining three candidates declared successful, one failed to pass the medical test, one declined appointment and one died.
