§ Mrs. WINTRINGHAM
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury the number of appointments to the administrative, higher executive, junior executive, and higher clerical grades, the appointment of women to the Civil Service; and whether he will furnish a list of the successful candidates in the order of merit in which they were placed in each grade by the Selection Board?
The number of appointments made to each of the classes mentioned on the result of the competitions for women held in November-December, 1922, under the Regulations dated 26th May, 1922, is as follows: —
I am sending the hon. Member a complete list of the appointed competitors, their classes and departments. No list in order of merit was issued by the Selection Board, which had to take account of the relative qualifications of the competitors for the vacant posts which were to be filled. I am also sending the hon. Member a copy of the published list of the result of the competitions: a few candidates whose names appear in the complete list but not in the original list were assigned to vacancies reported subsequently to the issue of the original list.
