§ Mr. T. Braddock
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if consideration will be given to making possible the early release of temporary civil servants in Government Departments who wish to return to their pre-war posts and occupations.
§ Mr. Dalton
We shall need to retain the services of many temporary civil servants for some time to come if Government policy is to be efficiently executed and essential public services properly maintained. Departments have, however, been instructed to reduce redundant staffs without delay and to deal as sympathetically as possible with individual applications for release.
