§ MR. RANKIN (Herefordshire, Leominster)
I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether Richard Hudson, rural postman at Moccas, Herefordshire, was dismissed from his post, at a week's notice, on 24th June last, in order that an Army Reserve man might be put in his place; and whether such dismissal was in pursuance of a policy to appoint Army Reserve men to positions under the Post Office; if so, whether he will consider the advisability of granting some compensation to Richard Hudson for being dismissed from the service of the Post Office?
§ MR. A. MORLEY
I am inquiring into this case, and when I get the information I will communicate with the hon. Member.
