§ Mr. H. WILLIAMS
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what is the annual wastage of staff in the Civil Service through retirement, resignation, and death, expressed as a total and as a percentage?
§ Mr. McNEILL
I am sending my hon. Friend a copy of an answer given to a similar question on 3rd August, 1922, which I trust will be sufficient for his purpose. The labour involved in bringing these statistics up to date would be very considerable, and I do not feel justified in arranging for a further investigation of the subject at the present time.
