Robinson; whether he will ascertain the nature of the complaint alleged against him; whether he will in quire as to the reason for giving him a fortnight's wages in lieu of notice; whether the man has ever been given an opportunity of facing his accusers; and whether he will endeavour to afford this man an opportunity of answering the charges made against him, with a view to bringing about the re-establishment of his character and obtaining his reinstatement in his employment?

Captain NORTON

I am not in a position to answer the hon. Member's question. Mr. Robinson was not a Post Office servant. He was engaged by the Refreshment Branch Committee, and was entirely under the committee's control.
