33. Mr. TYSON WILSON
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that H. Gregory, late private, No. 9462, Royal Fusiliers, residing in Daisy Hill, West Houghton, was notified on the 12th March that if he would call at the Daisy Hill Post Office his account book, No. 142,015, in respect of his gratuity would be handed to him; that up to the present the account book has not come to hand and that Gregory has written six times to the Controller but can get no reply; and whether, in view of the many complaints being made regarding the delay in dealing with these gratuities through the Post Office, he will have inquiries made into the matter?
§ Mr. ILLINGWORTH
Mr. Gregory's gratuity book unfortunately failed to reach the Daisy Hill Post Office, to which it was seat in ordinary course. Arrangements have now been made to pay the money to him at once.
