THE ADMINISTRATION

The system of promotion through the service is based on two principles. These are, first, that normal annual increments of salary provide promotion by seniority. Also there is an annual report offering a basis for promotion by merit. To ensure fair treatment an officer is entitled to be notified of any adverse comment contained in a report and to defend himself.
No civil servant is permitted to play any part in politics. Since 1927 he may not belong to a trade union affiliated with any outside body.(1) While it is probably inadvisable that a policy-making official should stand for or enter the House of Commons, where he might come into conflict with the political chief with whom he is in confidential official contact,(2) there seems no reason why any other employee of the State should not be free to exercise his full rights as a citizen, even to the length of serving his country in Parliament, where such service does not interfere with his ordinary duties. Nor where it does so interfere is there any reason why he should not be given leave of absence without pay for the duration of his Parliamentary office, as is the practice with regard to some types of State employment in France. The contrary custom of penalising the State-or any otheremployee by forcing him to resign his employment and abandon himself to , the economic risks and insecurity of a political career is suitable only to a society governed by its propertied upper middle class, where alone the House of Commons can be fittingly composed only of the wealthy and oi men who control their businesses or have free exercise of their professions.
