§ 36. Mr. CLARKE
asked the Minister of Labour if, in view of the fact that there are a number of ex-service men employed in Employment Exchanges with four years' service, and who are also qualified book-keepers, he will now allow them to be rated as permanent hands without their requiring to pass any further examination?
§ Mr. SHAW
The question of the permanent establishment of temporary ex-service staff in Government Departments is now under consideration by Lord South-borough's Committee. I am, unable, therefore, to deal with the hon. Member's suggestion until the Government have had an opportunity of considering that Committee's recommendations.
