    THE report of the Committee of the Civil Service National Whitley Council on the staffing of the Civil Service during the reconstruction period, appointed in accordance with the Government's request as announced by the Chancellor of the Exchequer in the House of Commons on February 17, 1944, and containing proposals agreed between the official side and the staff side of the Council, has now been published*, under cover of a statement by the Government. The report proceeds on the basis envisaged in the Chancellor's statement that recruitment to the permanent service should begin at the earliest possible moment after the end of hostilities in Europe, continuing steadily throughout the reconstruction period, to provide for the required intake by departments of appropriately qualified men and women, and for the smooth transfer into permanent employment of those selected, whether from the Fighting Forces or otherwise.
