§ Mr. RUTHERFORD
asked why an officer in receipt of a pension of£165 per annum from the Postal Administration of the Orange River Colony has recently been appointed to an established situation as sorting clerk and telegraphist at Liverpool?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL:
The appointment was made in accordance with the general policy of providing employment wherever possible for efficient officers retired from the service of the Orange River Colony under the scheme of retrenchment adopted in that Colony. In this instance the officer appointed had served, before going to South Africa, as a sorting clerk and telegraphist at Liverpool.
