HC Deb 14 July 1893 vol 14 c1561
MR. GRAHAM (St. Pancras, W.)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether he is aware that a City postman named F. W. Morss, after five years' service as telegraph messenger and two years as postman, has been disqualified on account of failing eyesight and granted a bonus of £6; and whether, considering the special nature or this enforced retirement, he will recommend the Treasury to re-consider the case, with a view to their exercising the rights conferred upon them in Clause 3 of the Superannuation Act (1887) Amendment Act, of reckoning temporary services in making up the amount of the bonus?


The particulars of Morss's service and the cause of his retirement were fully represented to the Treasury before his gratuity was fixed. The case is undoubtedly a hard one; but in view of previous decisions of the Treasury, I regret that the circumstances are not such as would justify me in asking their Lordships to re-consider their decision.
