asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has recently received a deputation from the Association of Ex-Service Civil Servants with reference to the further substitution of women in Government offices; and whether any action differing from that laid down in the Lytton Report is in contemplation?

The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative; to the second part that, as recommended by Lord Lytton's Committee, temporary non-service personnel in Government Departments will continue to be substituted, wherever possible, by ex-service men.

Have any of the women's organisations concerned been consulted on the matter?
