HC Deb 14 December 1922 vol 159 cc3198-9W
Viscount SANDON

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that ex-service men were not utilised as poll clerks in the Shrewsbury Division at the recent General Election, although it was advertised that preference would be given to ex-service men; and what action he proposes to take in the matter?


Such appointments rest with the returning officer, and I have no information as to the circumstances in the particular case referred to. I will, however, make inquiry and inform my Noble Friend of the result.
