HC Deb 12 March 1888 vol 323 c878
MR. HOOPER (Cork, S.E.)

asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether he can state the number of Civil Service writers who, by reason of age, are able to take the benefit of the alleged concession with respect to age in competing for Lower Division clerkships; and, the number who have actually done so?


I am informed that there are 350 copyists on the Register who, being above 20 years of age, are yet eligible to compete for Lower Division clerkships under the special Rule to which, the hon. Member refers; and that at the last competition 31 did so compete.
