HC Deb 08 February 1945 vol 407 c2202
17. Mr. Silkin

asked the Minister of Labour whether, since the Appointments Department was reorganised at the beginning of last month, there has been any change in its function as regards restrictions on engagements.

Mr. Bevin

No, Sir. It is not and never has been our intention that, in general, the engagement of persons for employment in administrative, managerial or executive capacity should be controlled after the termination of hostilities in Europe.
