HC Deb 19 November 1919 vol 121 c927W
Captain W. BENN

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether there is a general rule against entry to the Civil Service after the age of thirty; and whether any exception is made in the case of those who have served during the War?


The normal age limits prescribed for the different posts in the Civil Service vary according to the requirements of each class of appointment, as the hon. Member will see from the "Abstract of Rules and Regulation respecting examinations for the Home Civil Service," of which I am sending him a copy. For the competitions which have been arranged under the Reconstruction scheme, the normal age limits have been extended by an amount not exceeding the period of the War.
