HC Deb 09 August 1904 vol 139 c1566

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General if he can explain why a boy sorter, named Wilson, in Belfast office, suffering front acute nervous prostration, was severely cautioned for leaving his lodgings in Belfast and going to his home in the country, by the instructions of two qualified medical practitioners whom he consulted; is he aware that the medical officer at Belfast, in reporting this case, informed the postmaster that the practice of officials taken ill in town and going to their homes in the country should be stopped; and, if so, will he take steps to provide the necessary attendance of youths who may be taken ill and who are debarred from going to their homes; and will he direct the record against Wilson to be cancelled.


I am making inquiry on the subject of the hon. Member's Question and will inform him of the result.
