asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food what action it is proposed to take in the case of the clerk of the Pontardawe Rural District Council who recommended to him an employee of the council, dismissed and later prosecuted for defalcations, as one having excellent credentials, the said employee afterwards being sentenced to six years' penal servitude for forgery and embezzlement?

The recommendation was given by the official in question whilst serving as food executive officer of the Pontardawe Rural District. He is being suspended from duty pending his reply to the suggestion that he knowingly recommended an unsatisfactory person for employment. My Noble Friend is considering what further steps can appropriately be taken.
