Temporary Postman.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ex-Service Men. – in the House of Commons on 17th July 1922.

Alert me about debates like this

Sir F. HALL:

71.

asked the Postmaster-General what is the number of temporary postmen at present employed in the London postal district; how many of these are men who did not serve in the War and how many are discharged service men; how many temporary employés were discharged during the two years to 31st March last and what proportion of these were ex-service men; whether it is proposed to make further reductions in the temporary staff owing to certain rearrangements of the postal service; and whether steps will be taken to ensure that no temporary ex-service men shall be got rid of until the list of non-servers has been exhausted?

Sir F. HALL:

Can the right hon. Gentleman reply to the last part of the question?
