HC Deb 08 March 1911 vol 22 cc1213-4

asked the Postmaster-General whether a scheme would be promulgated on 1st April opening promotion of sorters to clerkships; whether such scheme would include the acceptance of the recommendation of the Parliamentary Committee on Post Office Servants, paragraph 107; and whether he could now give an undertaking that all the officers entitled to the benefit recommended by the Parliamentary Committee, in paragraph 107, would receive favourable consideration in any scheme that might be under consideration, more especially the officers at present suffering rustication under the scheme of partial rotation of writing duties now on trial in the London postal service?

The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Herbert Samuel)

No such scheme is under consideration.
