HC Deb 01 February 1940 vol 356 c1276W
Mr. Gledhill

asked the Minister of Labour how many professional and technical persons on the Central Register have obtained posts in Government Departments?

Mr. E. Brown

I assume that the hon. Member desires information relating to all classes included in the Central Register. The position on 27th January was that of the total number of persons whose particulars had been submitted to Departments since the outbreak of war, 3,163 had been notified to the Register as having been offered appointments. At least an equal number are at present under consideration by Departments for vacancies not yet filled.
