Lieut.-Colonel Sir FREDERICK HALL
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury the number of candidates it is proposed to assign to the established clerical classes in the Civil Service from the recent competitive examination?
100 candidates were declared successful in the first instance, and I am authorising an extension of the successful list to the 200th candidate.
Sir F. HALL
Will the hon. Gentleman bear in mind the claims of ex-service men who have been able to carry out these duties in a very satisfactory manner?
