HC Deb 20 May 1965 vol 712 c275W
Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what psychiatric or psychological advice he seeks and applies in cases where civil servants with criminal records in the past are on the point of promotion.

Sir F. Soskice

If it is considered necessary, psychiatric or psychological advice is obtainable about any officer at any stage in his career either from the Treasury Medical Adviser or from the appropriate professional officers in my Department.
