Particulars of service and qualifications of instructors under the Forestry Commission who became redundant in consequence of reduction of expenditure have been submitted to the Treasury with a view to that Department recommending them to the Colonial Office and in other quarters for employment in some analogous occupation in other parts of the British Empire. The Colonial Office has been supplied with particulars of these cases, but it is open to the officers to make direct application for employment to that Department or elsewhere.
