HC Deb 26 March 1946 vol 421 cc213-4
59. Brigadier Low

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether temporary civil servants, who volunteer for service abroad with U.N.R.R.A. on the Control Commissions, will be allowed to leave their present posts.

Mr. Dalton

This must depend on the circumstances of each individual case.

60. Mr. Janner

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many temporary civil servants have been in the Civil Service for more than six years; and when it is proposed to take steps to offer the equivalent of demobilisation to those who have served for such long periods and who are now anxious to be released for other employment.

Mr. Dalton

I regret that the information asked for in the first part of the Question is not available, but Departments deal sympathetically with individual applications for release and take length of service into account, together with other considerations.
