The Agenny's average grade is increasiag with gradually rising levels of professional categories and the elimination of clerical positions to cantors to ceiling limitetions. This increase is likely to grow with the reduced demand for clerical personnel under present ceilieg restric tions and the neosesity for more effective utilisation of clerical personnel. Initially, the Chief, OWD, believes it would be desirable to under- take a review of registry and mail and file positions in the Agency; for the present, exclusive of RI Division. The retire could later be extended to include other clerical position categories, such es typists and stenogrephers. This viii be consistent with practice in other agencies.
