HC Deb 08 December 1948 vol 459 c53W
69. Mr. Astor

asked the Postmaster-General if he will take steps to alter the regulations governing matters of compensation, so that the Post Office will pay compensation for loss due to its own negligence, as in the case of Miss P. E. M. Goodman, of 41, Littleheath Road, Selsdon, Surrey.

Mr. Wilred Paling

No; but having reconsidered the very exceptional case to which the hon. Member refers, I propose to authorise an ex gratia payment, about which I will write to the hon. Member.
