§ 56. Brigadier Medlicott
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer to how far it is intended to extend the practice that applicants for certain posts in the Civil Service are to pay a fee of £1 for the registration of their applications; and whether he will ensure that when such fee has been paid the applicants will at least be guaranteed an interview.
§ Mr. Glenvil Hall
Fees have always been charged for all Civil Service competitions. The amounts have recently been substantially reduced and the fee does not now in any case exceed £1. It is for the Civil Service Commissioners to decide, subject to the regulations governing each competition, whether to summon to interview all the candidates who apply or not.
