§ 54. Mr. CLARRY
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury if he will consider the advisability of stopping further open recruiting in certain Departments of the Civil Service until such time as redundant civil servants now on the staff of other Departments have been absorbed?
§ Mr. HORE BELISHA
Wherever possible vacancies are filled by transfer of suitable redundant personnel rather than by new recruitment but the complete stoppage of such recruitment would not be practicable or in the interests of the public service?
