§ MR. SEAVERNS (Lambeth, Brixton)
To ask the Postmaster-General whether he can state the number of telegraphists of both sexes who, on 31st December, 1907, possessed the increment for a knowledge of technical telegraphy; and whether he can state the number of telegraphists of both sexes who were eligible to obtain it.
(Answered by Mr. Sydney Buxton.) I am afraid I have not got the information desired by my hon. friend, and it could not be obtained without considerable trouble and expense.
