HC Deb 02 March 1921 vol 138 cc1964-5

Motion made, and Question proposed, That a Supplementary sum, not exceeding £3,000, be granted to His Majesty, to defray the Charge which will come in course of payment during the year ending on the 31st day of March, 1921, for the Salaries and Expenses of the Civil Service Commission.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

I wish to call attention to the question of the examinations that have been forced on many of the temporary employés in Government offices, a matter affecting many hundreds. They are now unable to learn from the Civil Service Commissioners what their fate is to be, whether they have passed the examination or not. Many of these women have entered into this examination in good faith, and are unable to learn the result of the examination, and I think the Government have treated them extremely shabbily. I shall be glad if the right hon. Gentleman will have these women's anxiety removed.


I am looking into that question.
