HC Deb 24 July 1924 vol 176 cc1491-2

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he has received an application from the temporary and other women clerks in Government service to receive a deputation to ask him to consider as to granting the women clerks the same conditions as granted by the Southborough Committee to men and adopted by the Government; and will he be prepared to receive such a deputation?

The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. William Graham)

I have received a request for such a deputation from the Association of Women Clerks and Secretaries, and I have arranged for them to meet officers of the Treasury to discuss the claims in question. I understand the meeting is taking place to-day.

Lieut.-Colonel JAMES

Is the hon. Gentleman prepared to meet a similar deputation of ex-service civil servants?


A deputation from them has been received already, and unless there be some fresh point, I am afraid I could not arrange for another deputation.
