HC Deb 06 March 1940 vol 358 c400W
Mr. David Adams

asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware that the divisional food officer for the southern division receives the salary of £1,000 per annum, is in receipt of a pension of £633 per annum from the India Office, and whether he will consider appointing to this post a qualified person not in receipt of an alternative income?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

The answer to the first part of the Question is in the affirmative; as regards the second part I see no reason to reconsider this appointment.
