HC Deb 22 December 1971 vol 828 c343W
36. Mr. Carmichael

asked the Minister for the Civil Service what was the average pass mark for a candidate for a clerical grade in the Civil Service to be offered an appointment in Glasgow, Newcastle and London, respectively, in each of the last three years.

Mr. David Howell

No central record is maintained of the marks awarded by Departments to locally-recruited clerical staff, but the available evidence indicates that the average pass mark for Glasgow has been higher than for Newcastle-upon-Tyne and London.
