HC Deb 21 March 1923 vol 161 c2584W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether, in contravention of the Civil Service rule that an officer who has issued his electoral address as a candidate for Parliament ipso facto relinquishes his post as a Crown employé, it is proposed to reinstate Major R. G. Roberts as regional director of the Wales region of the Ministry of Pensions or to appoint him to any other post in the Ministry?

Major TRYON:

I have been asked to reply. I regret that the considerations referred to in the first part of the question make it impossible for me to offer re-employment to Major Roberts.
