§ 31. Mr. CHARLES BATHURST
asked the President of the Board of Agriculture whether he has yet appointed the chief entomologist and the other members of the staff of the new Horticultural Department of the Board; and, if so, what are their names and salaries?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Runciman)
The Board has not yet secured the services of an entomologist with qualifications high enough for the duties to be performed in the Horticultural Branch. I will give the hon. Member the information for which he asks as soon as I am in a position to do so.
§ Mr. C. BATHURST
Apart from the entomologist, have any members of this new horticultural department, the formation of which was announced about a year ago, been appointed?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
Oh, yes, Sir. I have appointed several, but the staff is not complete. As soon as I have a complete list I will send it to the hon. Gentleman.
