HC Deb 23 October 1945 vol 414 c1956W
Mr. Linstead

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether it is the intention of the Government to continue the regulation whereby a married woman is not transferred to an established post in the Civil Service unless the Civil Service Commissioners, the Treasury and the Department are satisfied that there are special reasons for the appointment; and if he will state in how many cases, during the last convenient period, sanction has been given to such a transfer.

Mr. Glenvil Hall
