§ Mr. CADOGAN
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury how many ex-service men of the established manipulative grades of the Post Office have been appointed to the clerical class as a result of examinations since 1st January, 1920?
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
I have been asked to reply to this question. The total number of appointments to date from the examinations in question is 598, and the great bulk of the men appointed were ex-service men. The exact number of ex-service men is not available.
