§ 94. Sir H. CRAIK
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether local commissioners have already been appointed for nine out of the eleven districts under the Director-General of Housing; and whether, in the case of future appointments under this Department, it would be possible to invite applications by advertisement, and so allow to the large number of qualified engineers now in the Army or recently demobilised an opportunity of having their names and qualifications considered before appointments are made?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Major Astor)
In making the appointments of commissioners special consideration has been given to the applications of men who have served in His Majesty's Forces. Of the ten commissioners appointed five are officers in the Army.
