HC Deb 09 December 1919 vol 122 c1157W

asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the importance of the issue involved in the case of Postman Anderson, of Arbroath, who is suffering a deduction from his weekly wages of 5s. for a long term of years in order to refund the Treasury a sum of £95, paid in error to his mother while her son was serving abroad, he will consult the Law Officers of the Crown as to the legality of inflicting upon a Post Office employé the burden of repaying a debt not incurred by him, and properly to be debited to the official who is responsible for the error?


I must refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave him on the 1st instant.
