HC Deb 14 April 1919 vol 114 cc2529-30W

asked the Post-master-General whether two priority lists for the release from the Army of about 300 Post Office servants have been sent to general headquarters, France; whether he is aware that of this number the great majority are men who enlisted subsequent to 1914, and that about sixty are men who are available for the Army of Occupation, whether he can give the reasons for excluding from these lists men who enlisted in the very early days of the War; and whether he will explain the method employed in deciding which men shall be included in these priority lists?


I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given to a similar question by the hon. Member for Kings-winford on the 9th instant. As was stated then, the schedules are being revised in consultation with the military authorities in France.
