asked the Postmaster- General whether he can give any information about a man named Mr. English, who was working at a London sorting office along with three others, when a bomb hit the office, where he then helped to salvage mails with a hurricane lamp?

Mr. Chapman:

Mr. English is a temporary sorter and along with other sorters on duty rendered excellent service on the night of the 10th–11th May, when during a severe air raid the building in which he was working was struck by a bomb.

My hon. Friend may rest assured that the services of this officer and all other officers concerned have been brought to the notice of my right hon. Friend.
