HC Deb 05 March 1896 vol 38 c224

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that Lance Corporal Patrick M'Elhone, 2,289, 1st Class Army Reserve, Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, who served nearly seven years of his time in India, and received a certificate of exemplary character and second class educational qualification, has been refused a second recommendation by his superior officer to the postal authorities; can he state the grounds for this refusal; and, will he inquire into the facts, with a view to the enforcement of Rule 3, Queen's Regulation, in Gale and Poldeu's "Guide to Civil Service Employ?"


Further inquiry will be made in this case; but, it seems that the man was refused a second recommendation because he had thrown up, without satisfactory reason, similar employment previously obtained for him.

Forward to
