GENERAL REGULATIONS* (issued 8th April 1872; and amended by Notices in the LONDON GAZETTE of the 24th January 1873 and 21st November 1873,) respecting OPEN COMPETITIVE EXAMINATIONS for SITUATIONS in the CIVIL SERVICE.

1. Competitive examinations of candidates for various situations or classes of situations in the different public departments will be held from time to time at such places as may be deemed expedient. Before every such examination special regulations will be issued, in which the particular conditions of the competition will be specified. At each examination such a number of candidates will be selected as may be necessary to fill the situations which may have been reported to the Civil Service Commissioners as vacant up to the date at which the result of the examination is declared.

2. These examinations will be open, with such exceptions and under such conditions as may be laid down, to all natural-born subjects of Her Majesty, being of good health and character.

3. Persons actually serving in the army or navy will not be admitted to compete for situations in the Civil Service.

4. Engineer students in Her Majesty's dockyards will not be eligible to compete unless they obtain the express consent of the Lords of the Admiralty to their presenting themselves as candidates.

5. Members of the Royal Irish Constabulary of less than 12 years' service will not be admitted to any open competition, until they have resigned their appointments in that force, unless the Inspector General of Constabulary shall otherwise recommend.

6. Any person who after succeeding in any examination held under these regulations may have declined to accept the situation offered him in accordance with their provisions, or who may have accepted such a situation and passed into actual employment in the Civil Service, will be disqualified for admission to any subsequent competition for the same situation or class of situations.

7. Candidates who have served as pupil-teachers or schoolmasters in schools under inspection by the Committee of Council on Education, England, or by the Commissioners of National Education, Ireland, will be reported specially to those Departments; and such of them as have been trained in normal schools at the public expense will not be qualified to receive appointments in the Civil Service until the consent of those Departments, given in conformity with rules sanctioned by the Lords of the Treasury, has been notified to the Civil Service Commissioners.

8. In reckoning age for competition the following allowances will be made, viz., (1) members of the military and naval services (whether commissioned or non-commissioned) may deduct from their actual age any time during which they have served; (2) persons who have served for two full consecutive years (a) in any civil situation to which they were admitted with the certificate of the Civil Service Commissioners, (b) in the Royal Irish Constabulary, or (c) as registered writers in connexion with the Civil Service, may deduct from their actual age any time not exceeding five years which they may have spent in such service.

9. If at any examination two or more situations, whether in the same or in different departments, shall be offered for competition, the successful candidates will be permitted to choose in their order as determined by the competitive examination among the situations offered for competition; provided that they be duly qualified according to the special rules prescribed, under clause IV. of Her Majesty's Order in Council of 4th June 1870, for the particular situations to which they may severally be assigned. If there be a vacant situation for which no one of the selected candidates is duly qualified, the Civil Service Commissioners may offer it to the candidate highest at the time on the list of selected candidates, subject to his passing a qualifying examination within such period as they may determine; or they may reserve it to be filled by means of a subsequent open competition, or otherwise, as they may see fit, in accordance with the Order in Council of 4th June 1870.
