HC Deb 21 July 1915 vol 73 c1506W

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether he will consider the advisability of the age limit for entering Civil Service examinations being temporarily extended in the case of those competitors who take service in the Army or in the munition works during the War, seeing that without such relaxation many patriotic students must abandon hope of a career in the Civil Service?


The Treasury has already accepted the principle that an extension of age should be allowed to candidates at future Civil Service examinations in respect of approved war service. The precise definition of "war service" is now under consideration.
