§ 54. Sir HARRY BRITTAIN
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what steps are taken to obtain alternative employment for temporary civil servants whose engagements are terminated?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Arthur Michael Samuel)
The names of all ex-service temporary clerks (to whom: I assume my hon. Friend intends to refer) becoming redundant in their Departments are notified to the Joint Substitution Board whose duty it is to place them where practicable in other Departments requiring temporary staff. In this con- 994 nection I would refer my hon. Friend to my reply of the 22nd November to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Dulwich (Sir F. Hall) for a statement of the arrangements now being made to provide further opportunities for the re-employment of these clerks on a temporary basis. I am sending my hon. Friend a copy of that reply.
