§ Mr. GERALD HURST
asked the Minister of Labour why the Ministry of Labour has stated its decision to allocate 200 vacancies to new entrants to the Civil Service at a time when 122 ex-service temporary clerks are being dis- 610W missed as being redundant; and if he will adhere to the undertaking to retain and allocate their due share of promotions to ex-service men?
§ Sir A. STEEL-MAITLAND
I can only refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave to questions on this subject on the 17th February, 1928.
