§ Mr. CASSELS
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that many Post Office servants are still awaiting a settlement of their claims to the payment of war bonus withheld during their service with the Colours, notwithstanding that the House of Lords gave judgment in their favour as long ago as 16th March, 1923, and that his predecessor in office gave an undertaking to expedite the legal inquiries so as to complete the settlement 1376W by the end of 1923; and whether, in view of the delay that has already taken place, he will state what the present position is, and give an assurance that the outstanding claims shall be settled forthwith?
§ Mr. HARTSHORN
I must refer the hon. Member to the answer given to the right hon. Member for Colchester (Sir L. Worthington-Evans) on the 7th instant, of which I will send him a copy.
