HC Deb 25 July 1890 vol 347 c912
MR. SUMMERS (Huddersfield)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he will consider the advisability of taking the right of nomination to certain appointments in the Postal Services out of the hands of the Patronage Secretary to the Treasury, and of placing all such appointments in the hands of the Department that is responsible for the efficient administration of the Service in question?

* THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. W. H. SMITH,) Strand, Westminster

The question is one that is receiving the consideration of the Government, with the view of securing efficient administration.
