§ 54. Major HILLS
asked the Lord Privy Seal when the Orders in Council regulating the admission of women to the Civil Service under the Sex Disqualification Removal Act will be laid upon the Table?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Baldwin)
As I informed the hon. Member on the 17th February, the question of the recruitment 389 of women to the Civil Service was referred, with other questions, to the joint committee of the Civil Service National Whitley Council. That committee has now submitted a report on the main point of its reference, but a number of subsidiary questions remain to be discussed, and it is not yet possible to draft Orders in Council embodying the changes to be made.
