HC Deb 23 March 1903 vol 119 c1464
MR. NANNETTI (Dublin, College Green)

I beg to ask the, Postmaster-General whether his attention has been directed to the fact that two female technical officers appointed in connection with the recently introduced intercommunication switch system in London, were selected over the heads of seniors possessing equal technical qualifications; and whether, seeing that in one case the official selected was taught switching duties by a telegraphist who is now passed over, he will state the reason for the selection of these officers.


The hon. Member has been misinformed. There is no question of promoting or passing over any officer. All that has been done is to assign to particular duties, carrying no special rank or pay, two officers who were believed to be competent to perform them.
