asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury how many ex-service men, how many non-service men, and how many women have been discharged from Government Departments during the month of February?

Mr. YOUNG:

Information is, I regret, not available showing the actual number of employés discharged from Government Departments during the month of February. The net reduction in the number of persons employed in the three categories during the period in question was as follows:

Permanent and temporary staff together.

Ex-service men, 435, or 0.3 per cent. of the number of ex-service men employed.

Non-service men, 792, or 0.7 per cent. of the number of non-service men employed.

Women, 1,577, or 1.7 per cent. of the number of women employed.

Temporary staff alone.

Ex-service men, 1,116, or 2.2 per cent. of the number of ex-service men temporarily employed.

Non-service men, 370, or 6.8 per cent. of the number of non-service men temporarily employed.

Women, 1,736, or 5.4 per cent. of the number of women temporarily employed.
