§ 46. Sir A. KNOX
asked the Prime Minister whether he will consider the appointment of a Royal Commission to decide what further places in Government employment can be reserved for ex-service men?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answer given to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Cardiff (Captain Evans) on 19th November, of which I am sending him a copy. The question whether a still larger number of posts in the Government service can be reserved to ex-members of the Regular Forces is constantly under review and is being specially considered at the present time. I do not think that the appointment of a Royal Commission would facilitate the detailed inquiries which are inevitable in connection with the consideration of a 1637 matter of this kind, but my hon. and gallant Friend may rest assured that if additional machinery for the purpose in view were thought to be advisable any necessary steps would be taken.
