HC Deb 19 July 1938 vol 338 cc1995-6
64. Mr. Buchanan (for Mr. McGovern)

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will give consideration to the claim of the widow of Mr. J. D. Manning, late letter-carrier, of 71, Duke Street, Port-of-Spain; and is he aware that on 4th December, 1937, Mrs. Manning was asked to put her case in an interview with the Governor and she responded by writing, but got no reply from the Governor; that Mr. Manning had 27 years' service and his wife 18 years' service in the General Post Office, and was recommended for a pension by the Postmaster-General, which was agreed to as from 1st January, 1926, and that he died on 29th July, 1925?

Mr. M. MacDonald

I have received no communication from the Governor of Trinidad in regard to this case, but I will make inquiry of him in the matter.
