§ MR. GODDARD CLARK (Camberwell, Peckham)
To ask the Postmaster-General if he can state the cause of the delay in filling up a number of appointments now vacant in the class of overseers and senior telegraphists at the Central Telegraph Office.
(Answered by Mr. Sydney Buxton.) The appointments to which the hon. Member refers are not yet formally vacant, the retirement of the officers filling thorn at present having as yet not been finally authorised by the Treasury, but I hope soon to be in a position to make the appointments.
