HC Deb 21 October 1971 vol 823 c164W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why a qualified doctor who applied for a position as a police surgeon or deputy police surgeon as a result of an advertisement did not receive an acknowledgement of his application until after the intervention of the hon. Member for West Ham, North; on what date this man applied for these posts; on what date the hon. Member's letter asking for an investigation was received; and on what date the Establishment Office wrote to the doctor, and with what results.

Mr. Sharples

I have written to the hon. Member, giving an explanation of the circumstances, in reply to his letters of 24th September and 4th October.
