HC Deb 30 October 1918 vol 110 c1495W

asked the Postmaster-General whether adequate precautions are taken to ensure that Civil servants who joined the Army, were wounded, discharged, and have returned to duty at the Post Office, have, as far as possible, as equal a chance of rising in the Civil Service as they would have had had they not been wounded; and is there, in view of possible hardship to these discharged men, any official in his Department to whom they are entitled to personally bring their ease?


Every effort will be made to prevent Post Office servants who have been discharged from the Army on account of wounds from suffering in prospects of advancement in the service. Representations from such persons respecting their prospects should be made to their superior officers, and in the event of their being dissatisfied with the result, an appeal will always lie to headquarters.
