Professional and General Divisions

Regulation 207. - The Commissioner may fix minimum and maximum ages for examination and appointment to any particular position in the Professional or General Division. Any determination of the Commissioner under this Regulation shall be notified in the Commonwealth Gazette.

Clerical Division

Regulation 208. - Candidates for appoint ment to the Clerical Division must, on the day of the examination, be not less than fifteen nor more than twenty-one years of age at their last birthday, provided that successful candidates who have not attained the age of sixteen years shall not be eligible for appointment until they have attained thatage.

In calling for applications for certain positions in the Commonwealth railways, not under the Public Service Act, it was recently provided that applicants over thirty-five years of age who were not in the Commonwealth or State Public Service were not eligible for the particular positions to which the advertisement referred, as it was considered desirable to conform to what is understood to be the general railway practice not to commence training persons over that ago for permanent positions.

Applicants of any age who are already in the State or Commonwealth Public Service were regarded as being eligible for the appointments in question.
