HC Deb 20 June 1912 vol 39 c1823
11. Captain CRAIG

asked whether, under the Government of Ireland Bill, the proposed new Parliament would have power to reverse the practice now in vogue in the postal service of allotting one-half of the vacancies for established postmen to ex-soldiers of the British Army?


It will be optional with the Irish Government to follow or to depart from the existing practice with regard to the appointment of established postmen.
