§ Mr. CLYDE
asked the Postmaster-General, whether the facilities given to ex-members of the Imperial Navy and Army, who desire to enter the postal service, extend to ex-members of the Colonial forces, who desire to enter the postal service; and, if not, whether he will consider the propriety of granting such ex-members of Colonial forces the same facilities as are granted to ex-members of the Imperial Navy and Army?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
I am not aware whether preferential employment is given to ex-soldiers and sailors from the United Kingdom who wish to enter Colonial postal services. But I will make inquiry in the matter.
