HC Deb 11 December 1900 vol 88 c507

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, if he will take into consideration the application of Mr. William Joyes, late postmaster of Midhurst, Sussex, for a pension, Mr. Joyes having been called upon to resign under the age limit, after an uninterrupted service of thirty-three years in the Post Office, during which his whole time has been given to the duties of his office.


Mr. Joyes, late postmaster of Midhurst, carried on a private business, and could not in these circumstances be certified to have given his whole time to the public service. This being so he was ineligible for any benefit under the Superannuation Acts.
