HC Deb 26 February 1924 vol 170 cc316-7W

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that postmen who were employed but not established at the time of their enlistment in His Majesty's forces, and who served during the late War, are not able to calculate the years of war service for pay and pension; and whether he will take steps to prevent the ex-service men being penalised in this way?


Unestablished Post Office servants who, prior to enlistment, had a definite prospect of establishment, were allowed, on taking up established duties on their return from military service, to count such period of this service for pay and pension as would have been counted for these purposes if they had not enlisted.
