§ Mr. E. DAVIES
asked the Minister of Pensions whether he is aware of the bitter feeling of resentment by ex-service men throughout Wales at the appointment to the post of regional finance officer of a civil servant from the Disposals Commission, who did not serve in His Majesty's forces during the War, over the head of the Welsh disabled officer who is an existing official in the Wales region of the Ministry; his reasons for penalising this officer; and, in view of the strong feeling of resentment which is growing day by day among Welsh ex-service men, he will reconsider this appointment?1472W
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
I have reconsidered this appointment. I propose to give it to an ex-service man, though not to the official referred to in the question.
