HC Deb 29 November 1949 vol 470 cc82-3W
72. Sir H. Lucas-Tooth

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what was the total number of temporary civil servants who left the service on the ground of redundancy during the period of 12 months to the latest convenient date; what proportion of such redundant civil servants were ex-Service men suffering from some pensionable disability; and how far preference is given to disabled ex-Service men to remain in the Service when reductions are made on the ground of redundancy.

Mr. Glenvil Hall:

I regret that the information asked for in the first and second parts of the Question is not available. Severely disabled temporary officers (including ex-Service men) who would have substantial difficulty in getting other work may receive preference in the order of discharge on redundancy.
