HC Deb 22 December 1965 vol 722 c436W
Mr. Jopling

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, how many senior officers in the Livestock Husbandry Group of the National Agricultural Advisory Service have taken post-graduate courses in population genetics; and what is his policy towards appointments of this sort.

Mr. John Mackie

Four livestock husbandry officers who have taken postgraduate courses in population genetics have so far attained Grade II rank or above. In making appointments to senior posts we must continue to have regard to a man's overall suitability, including his special qualifications and training. We shall be filling a new Grade I post for a specialist in genetics shortly.
