HC Deb 04 November 1918 vol 110 c1772
22. General CROFT

asked the Postmaster-General whether the subjects set in connection with the last examination for probationary sub-engineerships were determined by the Postmaster-General's Department or by the Civil Service Commissioners; if, and to what extent, his Department was responsible for the questions set; and if such subjects and questions represent the standard which will be required in future examinations for entry into the Post Office Engineering Branch?


The subjects of examination for probationary sub-engineerships were settled conjointly by the Civil Service Commissioners and the Post Office eight years ago. The Civil Service Commissioners were responsible for the questions set at the examination. I cannot say what will be the future scheme of examination for admission into the higher grades of the Engineering Department.
