HC Deb 06 July 1920 vol 131 cc1254-5W

Sir H. BRITTAIN asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether, in view of the recent alteration of the age limit from 18 to 20 to 16½ to 17½, for the future admission of women clerks into the new clerical class for the Civil Service, he will allow those who have just passed the latter age and have been working up for this examination to undergo their final test before the new rule becomes operative?

Mr. BALDWIN: I would draw the attention of the hon. Member to the reply I gave on the 24th June to the hon. Member for Belper (Mr. Hancock), to which I have nothing to add.
