Mr. TREVELYAN THOMSON:2.
asked the Minister of Pensions how many of the permanent and temporary members of the various headquarters staffs and their branches are ex-service men, and their proportion in each case to the total numbers employed both permanently and temporarily?
Excluding the Pension Issue Office and the Statistical Branch, which, under present conditions, are mainly reserved for women, 679 permanent and 7,671 temporary men are employed in the various headquarter offices and their branches in London and the provinces. Of these, 540 (or 79 per cent.) of the permanent men and 7,589 (or 99 per cent.) of the temporary men, are ex-service men.
