HC Deb 31 July 1957 vol 574 cc1244-5
28. Sir I. Fraser

asked the Postmaster-General if he will do his best, consistent with the public interest, to appoint ex-Service men, and especially disabled ex-Service men, as sub-postmasters when vacancies occur; and if his officers will consult the local British Legion officials.

Mr. K. Thompson

A determining factor must be the position and suitability of premises offered by applicants for appointment; otherwise preference is given to ex-Regular and disabled ex-Service men. Any representations that local ex-Service men's organisations may make about a particular appointment are carefully and sympathetically considered.
