asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury how many established civil servants surplus to requirements are now on the list known as the Treasury pool?

This question appears to be based on a misapprehension, as the Treasury pool was instituted not to deal with officers surplus to requirements, but to deal with promotions to posts in new Departments. It is only rarely that an established officer is surplus to requirements, owing to the large numbers of temporary staff employed, and therefore there is no central list of such officers, cases being dealt with as they arise.

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether the principle adopted for retiring surplus naval and military officers will also be adopted for retiring surplus established civil servants?

Provision is already made under the Superannuation Acts for the payment of compensation to civil servants on abolition of office; and it is not proposed to apply to the Civil Service the special arrangements proposed for naval and military officers.
