HC Deb 30 June 1927 vol 208 c565
41. Mr. BRIANT

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether the attention of the Civil Service Commission has been drawn to the fact that two officers employed in the Post Office Savings Bank, Messrs. F. L. Mynett and A. E. Ellis, who were refused establishment in the clerical class on medical grounds in 1919, have continued to render effective service ever since, and that they have now been selected for permanent posts in the P-class; and whether, in view of these facts, he will direct that the original refusal of establishment, on medical grounds shall be re-opened?


Mr. F. L. Mynett and Mr. A. C. Ellis were rejected on medical grounds in November, 1921, and April, 1923, respectively, and their cases were again considered in February, 1927, by the Civil Service Commissioners, who saw no grounds for re-opening them for further medical examination. The Commissioners cannot regard these officers as eligible for appointment to pensionable posts, and I am not prepared to interfere with their independent discretion in the matter.
