HC Deb 29 July 1941 vol 373 c1270W
Sir A. Maitland

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury on what grounds the editor of the "Sheerness Times and Guardian" was refused a list of the successful candidates at the recent open competitive examination for the entry of apprentices for His Majesty's dockyard?

Captain Crookshank

In view of the paramount necessity for paper economy, it was decided to reduce to a minimum the number of copies of this list to be printed, as it is a document of 70–80 pages. Candidates themselves do not receive a copy of it, but only an extract giving details of their own performance. No copies were furnished to any newspapers.
