HC Deb 07 August 1925 vol 187 cc1720-1W
Lieut.-Colonel JAMES

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether his attention has been drawn to the action of the staff side of the Departmental Whitley Council in the Air Ministry, the Board of Customs and Excise, and the Department of Inland Revenue, in refusing representation to the Association of Ex-Service Civil Servants on the staff side of the Depart- mental Whitley Council in each of these Departments; and whether, seeing that this Association has been accepted by His Majesty's Government as representing large numbers of ex-service men in the Civil Service, and especially in view of the fact that their exclusion from representation at present disfranchises large numbers of ex-service men, he will give instructions that representation is extended to that association without further delay?


Representation on the staff sides of Departmental Whitley bodies is a matter for the staff concerned to settle among themselves, and I am unable to intervene in the matter.
