§ Mr. BRIANT
asked the Postmaster-General if the temporary sorters at the South Eastern district office, Borough, who were given to understand that their positions would be ultimately made permanent, will be placed on the permanent staff?
§ Mr. KELLAWAY
I understand the hon. Member to refer to certain disabled men, formerly professional soldiers, employed as sorters at the South Eastern District Office. It is the intention to offer these men posts as established postmen, in their turn with other men awaiting such permanent situations, as vacancies occur. The appointments will, of course, be subject to their obtaining Civil Service certificates of qualification, and it cannot at present be stated when their turn for consideration will arrive.
