asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs what was the average number of days of sick leave per head taken by men and by women clerical officers and by members of the established typing grades, respectively, employed in his Department in each of the last three years; and what was the average number of days per head in the case of each grade taken on account of gastric and nervous trouble, respectively?

I have been asked to reply to this question. The clerical and typing staff of the Dominions Office (apart from the Oversea Settlement Department and the Empire Marketing Board) is interchangeable with that of the Colonial Office, so that separate figures could not be given for the Dominions Office). In any case, however, I fear that the records of the two offices would not enable my right hon. Friend to furnish the information desired by the hon. Member.
