§ 83. Mr. HARDIE
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that a claim for damages has been lodged with the postmaster, Glasgow, on behalf of Mary Jane Devlin, who was injured by a postal van last December; whether he is aware that an answer has been returned to the effect that the Postmaster-General, as an officer of the Crown, is not responsible for the acts of his subordinates; and whether this statement was made on his authority?
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
I have not yet had time to receive the necessary information, but I am making inquiries, and will write to the hon. Member.
