§ MR. SLOAN (Belfast, S.)
To ask the Postmaster-General if he can say under what circumstances is medical aid allowed free to the officials attached to Portglenone and Cullybackey Post Office, in County Antrim, and refused to officials connected with Ahoghill Post Office, in the same county.
(Answered by Mr. Sydney Buxton.) There is no medical officer attached to the Ahoghill Post Office, and the staff employed there have not therefore had the benefit of free medical attendance. In accordance with the recommendations of the Select Committee on Post Office Servants, an allowance of 8s. 6d. per annum will in future be made to each
§ or another been given. In those schools marked with an asterisk fees are still being charged under that section.
§ official at this office who would be entitled to free medical attendance if a doctor were attached to it.
