HC Deb 07 May 1903 vol 122 c15
SIR J. STIRLING-MAXWELL (Glasgow, College)

To ask the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the number of assistant postmen employed at Glasgow and the delay in their obtaining an established appointment, steps will be taken to have the matter adjusted as recommended on page 24 of the Tweedmouth Committee's Report, which has never been carried out in Glasgow.

(Answered by Mr. Austen Chamberlain) A revision of the outdoor force at Glasgow is now under consideration, and a sufficient number of new appointments will probably be found justified to admit of several senior assistant postmen being nominated to established places. †See (4) Debates, cxiii., 462.
