HC Deb 08 March 1945 vol 408 cc2247-8W
Lieut.-Commander Tufnell

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether recruitment for post-war appointments in the Foreign Service has yet begun; and what are the regulations governing such appointments and the conditions of service offered.

Mr. George Hall

Recruitment for the Foreign Service has not yet been resumed. The Civil Service Commissioners are hoping to publish the regulations for the reconstruction examinations for the Foreign Service at the beginning of June, and to hold the first examination a few weeks after that date or after the end of the war with Germany, whichever is later. The regulations will include a statement of the conditions of service.
