Mr. Carr:

The Overseas Services Resettlement Bureau was set up specially to help overcome the difficulties of members of Her Majesty's Overseas Civil Service retiring prematurely and is doing so with outstanding success.

Recruitment for overseas service is now on a contract basis for limited periods and in general I am not aware of serious difficulties regarding suitable re-employment on return to this country. My Department does all it can to encourage employers to release staff on terms which provide for their reabsorption and also to encourage a general recognition that overseas service is in itself of positive value as part of a professional career.
