The few additional nffioiall
required for Old Age Pension
were selected fioui those wl.n had
ed e\;imn at urns for

In ihe case of Labour Ex rhanges
no i ivil Service ex iminatmn
would have tested the necessary
qualifications, but Mr. Churchill
then President ol the Board ol
Trade, referred all save ox(cption-
al ippointmwtl to a committee
consisting of
Mi. Stanley Leatlies, C.B., a Ci-
vT Service Commissioner, apiminu
ed by Mr Balfour in i<)">
Mr. David Shackleton, as repre-
senting Labour; and a well know n
Unionist, a member of the I'aiifi
Reform Commission, as represent*
inj.' the empl yers.
Thus ii" Liberal had a seat on
this Selection Committee.
In the case of the Budget the
adi litiona I officials were required
for land valuation. In noca>>edid
Mr. Asquith or Mr. Lloyd George,
bojji ol them Treasury, offii ials, in-
terfere with an appointment. It
was the Inland Revenue ifncials
wild chose these men, and inquiry
showcd that "the vast majotity of
them are Unionists."
MR. BALFOUR'S NOMINEE
APPOINTED.
In the case of National Insurance
the Government nominated as
chairman ol the Commission Sir
Robert Morant, a distinguished of-
ficial who had been appointed by
Mi. Balfour in the Board "f Edu>
cation. The following minute was
issue. I :
"Any attempts made by candi*

nature or grade, under or in con-

or in anv other ways, vvill be re

As regards future appointments
for the working of these schemes,
competitive examin itions, suitable
to eai h c ise, are being arranged.
On I'll'. 14, 1913, Parliament
met, and on this, the first possible
opportunity, Mr. Asquith challeng-

Whip, .Hid I d ire say it is at the
table nowa motion fi .1 return
giving partii ulars of gentlemen
who have been appointed to pub-
li positions without examination.
"n Feb. j8, 1-;.-. two return
were granted
(1) Appointments without com
petitive examination from June 9,
1895, to Dee. 5, 1905, thai is by the
Conservative Administration.
(2) Appointments from Dec. 5,
Isthat is by the pre-
sent Government.
It will lie noted (hat when Mr.
Bonar Law made Ins charge, he
had no evidence that he could pro-
dm t, hut had i" seek su< li evidence
after passii g judgment.
In Janv. 1013, the two returns
were "ordered to he printed." In
March there was 1 King's Speech,
and a farther opportunity ol rais-
ing the matter on the Address. Foi
months the two blue.hook* have
hem available for the < Opposition
and the public, hut Mi. Bonar Law
has not yel fulfilled his promise In
"give everv opportunity" foi dis-
cussion Having levelled a grave
allegation at Ministers of the
Crownhaving obtained the full
investigation which he desired, he
remains silent neithei withdrawing
Ins accusations nol attempting lo
iu lify them. So niuch for the I'nry
leader and Ins darkle explicit -
litterly uiifoimd^rallei;;ition that
lie Prime Minister has been guilty
