HC Deb 18 November 1918 vol 110 c3205W

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether, in view of the provision that vacancies in the permanent Civil Service will, from the commencement of demobilisation to one year subsequently thereto, be reserved for ex-officers and ex-soldiers, similar opportunities will be accorded to second division clerks, who have seen active service, to obtain posts in the first division; and whether the prospects of promotion for second division clerks under Clauses 34 and 36 of the Order in Council of 10th January, 1910, will continue as heretofore?


Second division clerks who have served in the forces will be eligible to compete with other ex-Army candidates for first division posts. They will also, as second division clerks, retain their prospects of special promotion under Clauses 34 and 36 of the Order in Council.
