HC Deb 07 March 1922 vol 151 cc1090-1W

asked the Postmaster-General why the publicity officer recently appointed by him was not engaged through the Joint Substitution Board, according to Treasury instructions; why a non-service man was selected; what efforts were made to secure a qualified ex-service man; whether the post Was advertised; if not, how was this official obtained; whether at the present time numerous trained journalists fully quali- fied for this post, who have served with His Majesty's forces, are at present unemployed; and will he undertake to make inquiries through the Joint Substitution Board with a view to obtaining an ex-service, man for this post?


I shall be glad if my hon. Friend will repeat this question on Thursday.
