asked the Postmaster-General if he will explain the procedure with regard to the filling of permanent posts in the Post Office; and whether this is done by the Employment Exchanges or on nomination?

Permanent situations in the Post Office are filled in various ways, but I assume that the hon. Member has in mind more particularly vacancies for established postmen. These are filled either by the advancement of boy messengers or by the nomination of ex-service men. Ex-service men are recruited solely through the Employment Exchanges, which work for this purpose in conjunction with the National Association for the Employment of Regular Sailors, Soldiers and Airmen.
