HC Deb 30 March 1914 vol 60 cc824-5

asked the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been called to the case of Miss Major, employed in the Sheffield exchange, whose record was endorsed for malingering although the family doctor certified her unfitness for work; whether he is aware that the Department's medical officer declares he has made no adverse report concerning Miss Major; and whether he will cause full inquiry to be made?


This case has already been fully investigated. In the opinion of the medical officer to the Post Office Miss Major should have resumed work sooner than she did, and she was accordingly warned, for her future guidance, against giving rise to the suspicion that she absented herself from duty on insufficient grounds. I see no reason for reopening the case.
