HC Deb 07 June 1928 vol 218 c358W

asked the Minister of Health why a number of new entrant writing assistants, who were employed at Acton during last year solely for new work in connection with the Widows', Orphans', and Old Age Contributory Pensions Act, 1925, have already been transferred to other sections of the Ministry of Health to deal with an abnormal pressure of work, while in that departmen[...] ex-service temporary clerks are under notice terminating their employment (luring the present month?


A small number of writing assistants have been transferred from the pensions branch to other branches or my Department to deal with special and urgent work, appropriate to the writing assistant grade. The question of cancelling an equivalent number of notices given to temporary ex-service clerks is receiving my consideration.
