HC Deb 11 April 1946 vol 421 c339W
62. Mr. Vane

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware of the hardship now being caused to many prospective candidates for the Civil Service who, after receiving a warning order, may have to wait several months before they are called forward to sit for their entrance examination; and whether he will ensure that examinations are expedited.

Mr. Glenvil Hall:

I am aware that there are delays—I regret these. Some of them result inevitably from the competitive system, but every effort is being made to speed things up.
