65. Mr. ROBINSON
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury when the results of the examination of temporary civil servants for permanent appointments will be announced; and if he can state the reason for the delay in announcing the result?
§ Mr. McNEILL
I am informed by the Civil Service Commissioners that the results of the Southborough examination should be in the hands of candidates within the next two or three days, and that the number of candidates who qualified at the examination is 8,248. As regards the last part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave on the 4th March to the hon. Member for Abertillery (Mr. Barker).
