HC Deb 26 September 1939 vol 351 c1218W
Sir J. Lucas

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he can give any idea as to when the general clerical classes examination, boys and girls, for the Civil Service will take place, since its indefinite postponement is causing both disappointment and inconvenience to those concerned?

Captain Crookshank

I am afraid that, so long as war conditions continue, it is unlikely that it will be found possible to resume this competition.
