Sir J. HOPE
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department when the new regulations for admission to the consular service by competitive examination will be published; and whether these will give preferential treatment with regard to age and other conditions to demobilised officers and soldiers?
§ Mr. KELLAWAY
The regulations for the examination for entry into the Consular Service will be published by the Civil Service Commission very shortly. The answer to the second part of the question is Yes, Sir!
