§ MR. NOLAN (Louth, S.)
I beg to ask the Postmaster-General if there exists any Treasury Minute or Regulation which prevents the ante-dating of promotions to the dates of the vacancies where long delay occurs in the filling up of such vacancies.
§ THE POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Lord STANLEY,) Lancashire, Westhoughton
There is no such Minute or Regulation that I am aware of. The general rule of the Post Office is that promotions shall take effect on and from the date on which they receive the Postmaster-General's approval. Every effort is made to fill vacancies as soon as possible.
