HC Deb 09 December 1926 vol 200 c2301W

asked the Secretary of State for War how many of the 6f.; Grade III posts allotted to Army pay offices have been filled by pre-War employés and successful Southborough candidates, respectively; and how the 66 Grade III posts have been divided amongst the various regimental and command pay offices?

Captain KING

59 of the Grade III posts have been, or are in process of being, filled by pre-War established employés; the remaining seven posts will, it is anticipated, be filled by successful Southborough candidates. With regard to the second part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to my reply to the hon. Member for King's Norton (Mr. Dennison) on 3rd June.
