§ 2. Mr. KING
asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether his attention has been called to the case of a young lady, born of British parents in this country, whose two brothers, graduates of London University, volunteered in the British Army early in the War and are now serving; whether this young lady was interviewed by the Civil Service Commissioners and passed for an appointment; whether she was subsequently told that she was incapable of holding an appointment because her father had originally come from Russia; and whether, in order to cement the alliance between Russia and this country by generosity and good sense, this young lady will now be told that she is not disqualified?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. McKinnon Wood)
The hon. Member has given me further particulars of this case privately, but I have been unable to trace any application for an appointment by the lady referred to.
