HC Deb 05 March 1928 vol 214 cc820-1W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury how many of the 989 male entrants for the competitive examination for minor and manipulative grades for entrance into the clerical class are established messengers, sorters, telegraphists, preventive men, or other grades; their average age; and how many in each grade are ex-service men?


The detailed particulars asked for could only be obtained as a result of a special analysis, and I do not consider that the labour involved, which would be considerable, would be justified.
