§ MR. RADCLIFFE COOKE (Newington, W.)
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether "provisional" appointments have been made in the major and minor establishments of the Post Office; and, if so, whether they are made under the condition that, on the ratification of a provisional appointment, service shall account for the full appointment from the date of the making of the provisional appointment?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. HENRY H. FOWLER) (Wolverhampton, E.)
Provisional appointments have been made to the major and minor establishments of the Post Office, in connection with the introduction of the 6d. rate for telegrams. The services of the officers so appointed will count from the date of their provisional appointment in those cases in which the appointments are made permanent.
