HC Deb 16 March 1903 vol 119 cc856-7
MR. NANNETTI (Dublin, College Green)

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General if he will explain on what grounds a second divison clerk has recently been promoted to the position of first class assistant superintendent in the Dublin Sorting Office; and, in view of the practice that this position should be filled by an officer drawn from the staff of the controller of the sorting office, will he say why this course was not followed in this instance; and whether the statement of the controller that there was not a man qualified for promotion in the Department had any influence in this appointment.


The promotion in question was made because there was no officer of suitable rank in the sorting office who was qualified in all respects for advancement to the position of a first class assistant superintendent.
