I am informed that the Chairman of the Manchester Employment Committee has seen Councillor Flood, who has withdrawn his resignation from that committee. I should add that the post referred to was a part-time appointment as branch manager, which the present occupant has held for some years. I may add that the appointments to temporary posts at the Exchanges are, in the case of men, confined rigidly to ex-service men. In fact, excluding 747 branch managers—0a very considerable proportion of whom are themselves ex-service men—of the total male temporary staff of the Ministry, 99.16 per cent. are ex-service men.
