§ 71. Commander Noble
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury why full-time civil defence service for the whole war does not count towards the establishment of temporary civil servants; and whether he will give further consideration to this matter.
§ Mr. Glenvil Hall
I take it the hon. Member has in mind the arrangements described in the White Paper on Recruitment to Established Posts in the Civil Service during the Reconstruction Period 149W (Cmd. 6567) applicable to temporary civil servants over the age of 30. These were endorsed by Parliament and are in line with those in certain other fields, including the Disabled Persons Act, 1944, and the Superannuation Act, 1946.
