HC Deb 02 July 1919 vol 117 cc998-9W

asked the President of the Board of Trade if his attention has been called to the case of Fireman Skelland, of the Great Northern Railway, Doncaster, who volunteered for service in France on 10th November, 1914, without any consideration except to do all he could to help the fighting forces, and who served in France the whole of the time until May last, when he returned to take up his railway duties again, only to find that he had to start again as an engine cleaner; and whether he will see that Fireman Skelland is reinstated in a position at least as good as his old one, in view of his services to his country?


My attention had not previously been called to this case, but I will make inquiry and will let the hon. Member know the result.
