THE ADMINISTRATION

while only 2 went exclusively to London and Edinburgh, one to Glasgow, and one had been both at Liverpool and
Cambridge. Only 9 went neither to Oxford, Cambridge, nor to a public school, and when Oxford or Cambridge does not appear in the educational record it is generally replaced by such training as that provided to officers in the Army or to barristers in the Inns of Court. In the Foreign Office, which is in some degree a special case, nomination having been required until 1919, we find that every member recruited between 1851 and 1919 had been at Oxford or Cambridge, over one-third were Etonians, 37 per cent of the chief posts were held by men with hereditary titles, 53 per cent belonged to the aristocracy, and 12 per cent were the sons of officials in the diplomatic service.(1) In 1934 six of the chief embassies were held by sons of members of the House of Lords.(2) Professor Hilton, after making a wider analysis, confirms this general account. "Of 210 home Civil Servants receiving over £1,000 a year," he tells us, "152 have old school ties, and 70 of them have the sort that are looked on as really posh."(3)
The Administrative Class consists of about 1,300 officials(4) with salaries ranging from £275 to 3,000 pounds. This is the body of civil servants that comes most directly into contact with the political heads of departments. It is their business to prepare the material from which decision on policy issues. In important matters that decision is taken by the minister; in other cases the administrative grade official himself decides. He is the channel through which the expert knowledge of specialists, or the views of interested parties, percolates to
