§ . MR. WILKIE (Dundee)
To ask the Postmaster-General whether a petition was forwarded from the Dundee branch of the Postal Telegraphs Clerks' Association to the Secretary for Scotland in May last, asking that senior officers should be employed on the writing room duties in Dundee; whether he is aware that promotions have been given to junior officers on these duties at Dundee within the past few years out of proportion to their number; and whether he will consider the advisability of instituting a change in the method of selecting men for these duties.
(Answered by Mr. Sydney Buxton.) The memorial was duly received by the Secretary to the Post Office in Scotland, and he informed the memorialists in reply that the general question of the rotation of writing duties was under consideration at headquarters and that, until a decision was given, he could not give them a de- finite answer. I am myself considering the general question, and I hope to be able to give a decision soon.
