§ 32. Major NATHAN
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he will institute an inquiry into the rates of pay of the lower ranges of the ex-service post-War entrants to the Civil Service?
§ Major ELLIOT
As my hon. and gallant Friend is no doubt aware, the Royal Commission on the Civil Service made recommendations as to the future of the un-established ex-service clerical personnel. These recommendations will be taken 1084 into consideration by His Majesty's Government as soon as circumstances allow.
§ 31. Mr. HARRIS
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether it is proposed to carry out any of the recommendations of the Royal Commission on the Civil Service dealing with the ex-service post-War entrants in view of the rates of pay that most of them are receiving?
§ 33. Mr. SHAKESPEARE
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether the Government proposes to take any and, if so, what action upon the report of the Royal Commission on the Civil Service in respect of post-War entrants?
§ Major ELLIOT
The course of events since the publication of the report at the end of July last has prevented the Government from giving the report of the Commission the attention which it requires, but the Government propose to take it into consideration as soon as circumstances allow.
§ Mr. HARRIS
Does the hon. and gallant Member realise that some of these persons have less than a living wage, and will he see whether something cannot be done for them?
Is it proposed also to consult the organisations concerned, while the Government are considering the recommendations of the Royal Commission?
