HC Deb 27 June 1907 vol 177 cc70-1
Mr. WILES (Islington, S.)

To ask the Postmaster-General whether his Department during 1905 or any subsequent period experienced difficulty in obtaining enough ex-soldiers to fill the vacancies in the postal service open to them.

(Answered by Mr. Sydney Buxton.) During 1905 difficulty was occasionally experienced in some districts in filling postal appointments due to ex-soldiers; but the cases of difficulty have been comparatively few.
