§ 69. Sir W. Smithers
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many Treasury officials have resigned in the past three years; for what reason; and if he will give their names and the name of the office they held.
§ Mr. Gaitskell
Apart from clerks and typists and resignations on marriage the only resignations of established civil servants from the Treasury in the last three years have been those of Sir Henry Wilson Smith, a Second Secretary, Mr. P. D. Proctor, a Third Secretary, and one Assistant Principal of less than one year's established service. The reasons for the resignations were in each case personal and in no way concerned with the officer's official duties.
