§ Mr. BONWICK
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that when Mr. A. J. Scott, of 3, Clarence Cottages, The Square, Purton, an unemployed ex-service man, made application to the postmaster at Swindon for the vacant position of postman at Purton, he was referred to the Swindon Employment Exchange; that on Mr. Scott applying to the Employment Exchange he was referred to the recruiting officer at the barracks, Devizes; that in writing to the recruiting officer at Devizes, he received a reply from the 2035W National Association for Employment of Regular Sailors, Soldiers, and Airmen; and to whom men are to apply when such vacancies occur?
§ Mr. HARTSHORN
Ex-service men desirous of Post Office employment should apply to the Employment Exchange, who give instructions as to registration. The Exchanges have a working arrangement under which the National Association for Employment of Regular Sailors, Soldiers and Airmen keeps the list of ex-regular men. The hon. Member wrote to me recently regarding the case of Mr. Scott, and I am sending him a letter explaining the position.
