HC Deb 27 June 1918 vol 107 c1231
76. Mr. ALDEN

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that Joseph Sketchley, of Tottenham, who met with an accident in a General motor omnibus from a broken Post Office wire, which seriously injured his neck, is still unfit for work, and that both a Harley Street specialist and his own local doctor agree and have given him certificates to this effect, contrary to the opinion of the Post Office medical officers, who state that they consider him able to work; whether he is aware that the £60 granted has not even been sufficient to cover the cost of his illness, lasting over four months; and, under these circumstances, whether he is prepared to make an additional grant?


I have been making further inquiries about this case, in connection with letters recently addressed to me by the hon. Member. I am writing to him on the subject.
