HC Deb 08 May 1940 vol 360 c1242W
Mr. Parker

asked the Postmaster-General why disabled ex-service men are not considered, when suitable, for vacancies as sorters?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

Sorters' posts are a recognised outlet by limited competition for officers already in the Post Office service. A disabled ex-service man is eligible to be considered for appointment as postman, and if he becomes a postman, he will have the same opportunities as other Post Office servants to enter for the sorters' competitions when they are resumed.
