§ 62. Mr. ROMERIL
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that P-Class clerks in the Civil Service over 50 years of age who were rejected outright on medical grounds after success in the Lytton or Southborough examinations, and have since been recommended for exceptional promotion under Clause 5 of the Guinness agreement, are required to submit to a further medical test; and whether, in view of the fact that the men concerned cannot be given full established conditions of service on account of their age, a second medical test in such cases can be waived?
§ Mr. PETHICK-LAWRENCE
I am looking into this matter, and will communicate with my hon. Friend in due course.
