To ask the Postmaster-General if he will direct that telegraphists (male) at Belfast who are about to be tested in the higher duties of their class, with the view of passing the efficiency bar, will be afforded beforehand proper facilities to enable them to become familiar with the details of such test duties, particularly with regard to counter work, and that before being required to take charge of the counter they will have some experience of counter work generally.

(Answered by Mr. Sydney Buxton.) The Answer is in the affirmative.
