57. Viscountess ASTOR
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury, how many men and women, respectively, have been promoted to the administrative class from other classes of the Civil Service during the last five years and to which Departments they have been appointed?
§ Mr. W. S MORRISON
Particulars of promotions to the rank of assistant 2191 principal, that is, the junior rank of the administrative class, during the five years ended the 31st March, 1936, are contained in a table which I will circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT. No central record is kept of the promotions to the higher ranks of the administrative class, and I am not, therefore, in a position to supply my hon. Friend with information under this head.
Can the Financial Secretary assure the House that, although the Government will not give equal pay for equal work in the Civil Service, at least there will be equal opportunities of advancement for men and women?
§ Following is the table:
|Colonial and Dominions Offices||3||—|
|Customs and Excise Department||6||—|
|Board of Education||1||—|
|Ministry of Labour||1||1|
|Board of Trade||1||—|
