HC Deb 06 July 1943 vol 390 c1934
57. Mr. W. Brown

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether the number of vacancies in clerical grades in the Defence Ministries, reserved under peace-time arrangements to be filled by ex-Regular members of His Majesty's Forces, can, after the war, be spread through the clerical class in all Departments in order to make better use of the varied acquired experience of the said entrants?

The Financial Secretary to the Treasury (Mr. Assheton)

I am not at present in a position to make any statement about changes which may be made after the war in the method of recruiting to permanent Civil Service posts.
