HC Deb 15 December 1949 vol 470 cc297-8W
Commander Noble

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what employment pledge was given to ex-Service men of the 1914–18 war who joined the Civil Service; and how they are affected by the recent economy cuts resulting in redundancy of personnel.

Mr. Glenvil Hall

Ex-Service men of the 1914–18 war have preference for retention in temporary Government employment; this means that, if efficient, they will not be discharged till after all other temporary staff in the same grade and redundancy unit.
