asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he will issue a list showing the names, salaries and prior occupations of all area meat officers in London and the country, respectively, and showing which appointments were made from the Central Register of the Ministry of Labour and which were made after public advertisement?

The following statement gives the information desired with regard to area meat and livestock officers:a detailed statement to my hon. Friend when that has been done. All these laws have received the approval of myself or my predecessors.

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is in a position to give any further information as to the progress of legislation in the Nigerian Legislative Council designed to safeguard the position of pensioners?

The legislation to which my hon. Friend refers has been enacted by the Nigerian Legislature, and is now in operation.

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any organisation exists in the Colonial Office for the purpose of obtaining suitable employment for retired officials of the Colonial Service, whose pensions do not suffice to maintain them owing to increased taxation both at the Colonial source and in the United Kingdom?

A register has been opened at the Colonial Office for those Colonial pensioners who are willing to undertake further employment during the war. The names of any such officers with suitable professional or technical qualifications have also been sent to the Ministry of Labour and National Service for inclusion in the Central Register. About 60 vacancies in Government Service at home or in the Colonies are known to have been filled by the selection of retired Colonial officials from these Registers.
