§ Mr. GERALD HURST
asked the Minister of Labour whether there are any redundant male executive officers in the Ministry of Labour and, if so, how many; whether any women have been appointed recently to this grade or whether such appointments have been held up pending the absorption of the redundant men; whether any vacancies in this grade have recently been notified; and, if so, whether the posts are to be filled by men or women?
§ Mr. BETTERTON
There are, at the present time, no redundant male junior executive officers in the Ministry of Labour. Since the 1st November, 1924, seven appointments of women officers have been made to this grade (three by promotion and four by examination). Two vacancies for male junior executive officers have recently been announced.
