§ SIR ALBERT ROLLIT
I beg to ask the Postmaster General what number of postmaster ships have, since 1881, been given to members of the London postal service, distinguishing those given to telegraphists, postmen, sorters, and messengers respectively?
§ THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. ARNOLD MORLEY, Nottingham, E.)
The numbers are as follows:—Two postmasters, nine chief clerks, one superintendent, one assistant superintendent, one clerk, one inspector, one apparatus examiner, four countermen, three telegraphists, three sorters, one bagman—total 27. This number does not include transfers of postmasters from one office to another in the London Postal District.
§ MR. L. P. HAYDEN (Roscommon, S.)
I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether, in the event of a vacancy occurring in the postmastership of Cork, regard will be had to the claims of Irish officials to the position?
