HC Deb 19 March 1931 vol 249 c2147

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware that women candidates in a recent open competitive examination held for appointments in connection with the new system of accounting which has been adopted in His Majesty's Dockyard, Devonport, were informed that successful candidates would be appointed in the order their names appeared on the official pass-list; and whether this procedure is being carried out in the filling of these appointments?


The answer is in the affirmative. Where two candidates secured the same total number of marks, marking for arithmetic has been taken to determine priority.
