HC Deb 22 February 1937 vol 320 c1632
30. Mr. Viant

asked the Postmaster-General how many of the 1,051 rejected applicants for employment with the Post Office Engineering Department were accorded a personal interview?

Sir W. Womersley

Forty-four of these applicants were accorded a personal interview. The remaining applications received careful consideration but as they contained no evidence of suitability for employment in the engineering department no useful purpose would have been served by calling these applicants up for personal interview.
