§ Mr. BAKER
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that Mr. A. B. Mills has served for 34 years as an assistant at scale-payment sub-offices and has served for the last 12 years at Ruislip; whether he is aware that Mr. Mills has been given to understand that his services may shortly be dispensed with owing to the raising of Ruislip to the status of a salaried sub-office; and whether, in view of Mr. Mills' long record of service, and of the serious consequences of dismissal at his present age of 52 years, he will take steps to secure that Mr. Mills be retained at Ruislip, or that a suitable alternative position be found for him?
§ Mr. HARTSHORN
I am having inquiry made into the matter, and will communicate with the hon. Member as soon as possible.
