HC Deb 18 April 1923 vol 162 c2084W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the Consular Service falls within the ambit of the inquiry directed to be made by the Anderson Committee and, if so, whether their attention will be drawn to the relative numbers of service and non-service men appointed to Consular posts during the last two years?


Questions regarding the standard of remuneration and other conditions of employment of the Consular Service certainly fall within the terms of reference of the Committee referred to but those terms do not cover consideration by the Committee of the relative numbers of ex-service men and non-service men appointed to Consular posts.
