§ MR. HAROLD COX (Preston)
To ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether appointments in the Home Civil Service and in the Indian Civil Service are open to Colonial candidates; and, if so, whether appointments in the Civil Services of the various self-governing Colonies are reciprocally opened to candidates born in the United Kingdom or in India.
(Answered by Mr. McKenna.) Appointments in the Home Civil Service and the Indian Civil Service are open, subject to competition, where open or limited competition is prescribed by the regulations, to all qualified British subjects. I have no information on the point raised in the latter part of the Question.
