asked the Minister of Pensions if, in view of the circumstances under which Mr. W. E. Fox was recently discharged from the staff of the Ministry of Pensions Hospital, Cosham, Portsmouth, he will have inquiry made into this case with a view to some compensation being granted?

Mr. ROBERTS:

The services of this orderly were dispensed with because by his own acts he had brought about a state of affairs in which his retention would have been prejudicial to the patients in the Cosham Hospital. He was given a fortnight's notice of the termination of his appointment, a longer period than that required by the conditions of his employment, and no claim to compensation arises.

May I ask what the acts were which brought about the dismissal of this man?

Mr. ROBERTS:

I am afraid that I cannot give the information in answer to a supplementary question.

I give notice that, owing to the unsatisfactory nature of the reply, I will raise the matter on the Adjournment.
