HC Deb 22 November 1939 vol 353 c1229W
Mr. David Adams

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he will consider the advisability of securing that the Civil Service be an exempt occupation up to the age at which all Civil Service competitions, including that for the administrative grade, are held; and whether, in view of the necessity for ensuring the recovery and expansion of the social services at the conclusion of the war, he will consider the desirability of the total exemption from war service of civil servants holding important administrative posts directly concerned with the social services?

Captain Crookshank

Civil servants (non-industrial) other than members of the minor and manipulative grades and other than those in certain specific occupations are reserved in the Schedule of Reserved Occupations at age 25.
