HC Deb 15 December 1926 vol 200 cc2946-7W
Sir W. de FRECE

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury in what posts in the Civil Service, if any, a married woman may be appointed in an established capacity or a woman civil servant, already established, may be allowed to remain after marriage?


Under the regulations made, under the Order in Council of 22nd July, 1920, with regard to the admission of married women to, and the employment of married women in, established situations, all women candidates for any established situation in any His Majesty's civil establishments must be unmarried or widows, and women appointed to or holding any established situation in any of His Majesty's civil establishments are required to resiga their appointments on marriage. Exceptions to the above regulations may be made on the recommendation of the head of the Department if the Civil Service Commissioners and the Treasury ģin cases of recruitment) and the Treasury (in case of an officer already holding an established position) are satisfied that it is in the interests of the public service that such exception shall be made. Every such exception is published in the "London Gazette."
