§ Mr. Kinnock
asked the Minister for the Civil Service (1) if he will list in the Official Report the EEC regulations forbidding the employment of graduates in certain Commission clerical and administrative posts;
(2) if he will make representations to the EEC Commission with the purpose of changing the current regulations forbidding the appointment of graduates to certain Commission clerical and administrative posts;
(3) if he will list in the Official Report the grades and salaries of EEC Commission clerical and administrative posts which are forbidden to graduates.
§ Mr. Charles R. Morris
The EEC Staff Regulations contain no reference to the exclusion of graduates from appointment to clerical or administrative posts in the Commission. However, I understand that an administrative decision—which still applies—was made on personnel management grounds some years ago not to recruit graduates to certain clerical and secretarial posts.
