HC Deb 10 November 1921 vol 148 c622W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether the Civil Service Commissioners have prepared new Regulations for the issue of certificates of admission to the permanent Civil Service; whether he has considered whether such Regulations widen the terms of Clause 7 of the existing Order in Council providing for the grant of certificates without examination; and whether, in view of the strong feeling in the service on the subject, he will postpone the issue of any such Regulations until they have been laid before this House for consideration?


New Regulations, under an Order in Council of the 22nd July, 1920, for governing the manner of admission to the Civil Servivce and the conditions of the grant of certificates, are under consideration. No widening of the terms of Clause 7 of the Order of the 10th January, 1910, is contemplated, and the last part of the question does not therefore arise.
