§ MR. SLOAN
To ask the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that the assistant woman, superior at present in charge of the Donegal Square branch of the Belfast Post Office has reached the retiring age of sixty; and whether, seeing that when a claim was made some three years ago that she should perform rotation duties with other women superiors, the memorialists were asked to withdraw their petition on the assurance that she would, in the course of a couple of years, retire on pension, he will explain why it has been decided to further retain her services for a period of five years.
(Answered by Lord Stanley.) I am not aware of the circumstances to which the hon. Member refers, but I am making inquiry in the matter, and will communicate with him.
