HC Deb 28 July 1931 vol 255 c2115W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that auxiliary clerks have recently been dismissed from Government service on the ground that they are not of ex-Service status although the only reason why they did not serve was that they were interned in Germany for the whole period of the War; and will he consider the reinstatement of such men?


No such cases have come to my notice, but it is a fact that the preference for Government employment accorded to ex-Service men does not extend to interned civilians.
