EARL OF RONALDSHAY
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many persons have applied for posts under the National Insurance Act; how many appointments have been made; how many of the appointments made have been given to members of the Civil Service; and how-many to other persons?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
With regard to the first part of the question I would refer the Noble Lord to the figures I gave in answer to the hon. Member for Tavistock on the 29th instant. With regard to the second part of the question, I would refer him to the detailed figures I gave in answer to the hon. Member for Eastbourne on the 25th instant. Forty-eight of the persons appointed were from outside the Civil Service, the remainder (376) were already Civil servants (in two cases ex-Civil servants), or were appointed on the results of the ordinary examinations held by the Civil Service Commission.
