HC Deb 19 April 1905 vol 145 cc579-80

To ask the Postmaster-General if, in the proposed revision of the indoor force at Glasgow, which has been pending for some years, provision will be made for the 25 per cent. additional overseerships promised in his recently-issued Memorandum in addition to the clerkships already promised; and also when the revision is likely to come into force.

(Answered by Lord Stanley.) A revision of the rank and file at Glasgow was carried out in the early part of last year, and a further general revision is not contemplated. I am considering the question of increasing the number of overseers, and I will announce my decision in due course, but I must point out that I have not made any promise of an addition of 25 per cent.
