asked the Postmaster-General the dates between which he dismissed the 64 temporary postmen still unemployed in Glasgow; whether these men were dismissed in order that they might enter productive industry, or what was the reason for their dismissal; and whether he will now take them back into the Post Office service.

We have not been able to check the names of all the 64 men now signing on, but I understand that the majority were discharged on 31st May as, following the re-arrangement of services, they had become redundant to requirements. I regret that is still the position.
