HC Deb 01 November 1916 vol 86 cc1743-4W

asked the Postmaster-General whether ex-servants of his Department who have been dismissed by it as medically unfit have been accepted by the War Office as medically fit for that Department; and will he be prepared to accept in future the War Office standard of fitness in health?


I am not aware of any such cases. Some Post Office servants who have been retired on medical grounds may have obtained temporary employment at the War Office, but this fact would not necessarily indicate that they are physically fit for Post Office duties—possibly of an entirely different character.
