§ Mr. GEORGE ROBERTS
asked the Postmaster-General if he has received a memorial concerning the establishment of temporary clerks on an equal footing with employés of the National Telephone Company; and, if so, is he now able to state the decision he has reached thereon?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
I have received memorials on this subject. I hope to allow the temporary clerks referred to the opportunity of competing for established posts; but I am unable to extend to them the special arrangements made in the case of the staff to be transferred from the National Telephone Company.
