Civil Service.

Part of Oral Answers to Questions — Ex-Service Men. – in the House of Commons on 9th October 1924.

Alert me about debates like this


The Southborough Committee, as the hon. and learned Mem- ber is no doubt aware, have recommended that 25 per cent. of the marks at the examination for ex-service men should be allotted on a departmental report as to the candidate's performance of the duties required of him in a temporary capacity, and in allotting these marks it is intended to give special consideration to cases of grave disability. With reference to the second part of the question, I would remind the hon. and learned Member that, while not more than 5 per cent. disabled ex-service men qualify an employer for inclusion on the King's Roll, disabled ex-service men in the Civil Service constituted as much as 14.54 per cent. of the total staff, male and female, permanent and temporary, on the 1st August, 1924.
