§ Colonel Clarke
asked the Minister of Labour if he will inform the House on what date Mr. Edwyn Light, of Forge Cottage, Withyham, Sussex, applied for the advertised post of senior executive officer in the Central Office of Information; on what date he was finally told his application was unsuccessful; and what was the reason for this long delay in reaching a decision.
§ Mr. Isaacs
Mr. Light was submitted by London Appointments Office for the post of senior executive officer in the Central Office of Information on 10th November, 1948. The Appointments Office was informed by C.O.I. on 9th December that the vacancy had been cancelled and I understand that Mr. Light was so informed by the C.O.I.
