HC Deb 26 February 1920 vol 125 c1932W
Brigadier-General CROFT

asked the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been called to the fact that temporary postal staff employed during the War have been suddenly discharged in certain districts to make room for demobilised soldiers, as has been previously promised; whether he is aware that this sudden dismissal took place after the unemployment pay had been stopped; and whether he will consider the case of some temporary alleviation of the suffering caused by the discharge of the temporary Post Office servants?


I am arranging for not less than a month's notice of discharge to be given to members of the temporary War staff of the Post Office, but I regret that I am unable to make any other special provision for them.
