§ 72. Major COLVILLE
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury how many conscientious objectors have been promoted over the heads of ex-service men in the Civil Service in terms of the Circular of September, 1929?
§ Mr. PETHICK-LAWRENCE
I have repeated the inquiry made for the purpose of replying to the similar questions put to me on 17th December and 21st January last, and the answer is the same, namely, three.
§ Major COLVILLE
Will the hon. Gentleman say if these promotions were made entirely on the ground of efficiency?
