§ Mr. BRIANT
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury if, in the event of alleged wrongful dismissal of a civil servant, any facilities are given for an investigation into the circumstances of the case?
§ Mr. McNEILL
Except in cases which may give rise to criminal proceedings, it is the practice to communicate in writing to an officer full particulars of any charge against his conduct before any disciplinary action is decided upon. If subsequent to an officer's dismissal, it is alleged that the full circumstances were not considered, it is for the head of the860W Department to decide in his discretion of what further steps should be taken in the matter.
