§ 57. Mr. HARDIE
asked the PostmasterGeneral whether, in the case of a driver of a postal van in Scotland proceeded against for default in driving to the danger of foot passengers, the Crown will take up the case of the driver?
§ The ASSISTANT POSTMASTERGENERAL (Viscount Wolmer)
If the hon. Member will give me particulars of the case he has in mind, I will have inquiry made
§ Mr. HARDIE
May I protest once more in this House at being asked now to give details of this case, because the Noble Lord's Department. has had it three times, and when we put a question down we arc fobbed off in every other Department, and the Minister comes and asks us to give the details? When is this nonsense going to stop? He has the details and we cannot get a word out of him.[Interruption.]
§ Mr. SPEAKER
That is hardly the way in which to elicit a reply. May I suggest. that, if the hon. Member would put in his question the fact that the particulars of the case have been sent to his Department. that would enable the Minister to make sure that it is brought to his notice before he prepares his answer?
§ Mr. HARDIE
May I point out that I have already done so on another day in another question?? Four separate times has this been here in different forms, and I have gone there privately and shown the lawyer's letters with the girl's name, and the birth certificate, and yet I am asked to submit the case again.[Interruption.]I am a. business man
