§ Lieut.-Commander Hutchison
asked the Minister of Labour whether, having regard to the exceptional circumstances prevailing in the case of Mr. Robert Kinghorn, 18, Downfield Place, Edinburgh, he will arrange for his reinstatement in the employment from which his dismissal was declared by the Leith Local Appeal Board to have been unjustified.
§ Mr. Bevin
Although the Local Appeal Board which considered Mr. Kinghorn's appeal were of the opinion that his dismissal on the ground of serious misconduct was not justified, they nevertheless recommended that he should not be reinstated in his former employment. The Board's recommendation was accepted in its entirety and there is no further action I can now take in the matter.
