HC Deb 24 July 1947 vol 440 c168W
63. Sir J. Lucas

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what representations he has received that competent ex-Service clerks in the Civil Service are being discharged whilst married women with no dependants and conscientious objectors are being retained; and if he will take action to remedy this state of affairs.

Mr. Glenvil Hall

Length of service and not individual circumstances settles the order of discharge under the relevant National Whitley Council agreement.
