HC Deb 05 March 1919 vol 113 c409W

asked the Prime Minister whether the Government has adopted, or intends to adopt, the principles recommended by the Whitley Commission in relation to the whole of the clerical staff in Government Departments; and, if not, what is their justification for a discrimination between Government clerical workers and Government manual workers?


A Sub-committee of the Inter-departmental Whitley Commission has been considering the application of the recommendations of the Whitley Report to the administrative Departments of the Civil Service. I am informed that this Report is about to be presented to His Majesty's Government.
