Mr SPENCE - The case referred to is a very old one. Of postal employes engaged practically within the metropolitan area in this State, 116 officials have gone to' the front, and in view of this some objections were raised to leave of absence being granted to the particular officer, about whom the press has been making some fuss. This clerk is employed in a rather important branch of the Department, from which five clerks had already enlisted, and the officer in charge reported against his going away on the ground that his place could not be immediately filled. But there is no objection to postal employes generally volunteering for active service.
