The dismissal or retention of temporary women in the Ministry of Health is now being decided on reports by the Substitution Committee on the individual cases. There are three temporary clerks, wholly or partly of foreign origin, whose temporary retention is under consideration by the Committee. The services of all will be dispensed with in due course, as they are ineligible under a Government decision for retention as permanent civil servants.
