§ Mr. HENRY TERRELL
asked the Postmaster-General whether, when in winter junior telegraph clerks in Gloucester supersede senior postal clerks in day and counter duties on the postal side of the service, thereby reducing senior postal clerks to night and sorting duties, such postal clerks receive any and, if so, what compensation for being superseded by their juniors and compelled to do lower grade work in order to find occupation for the juniors in the superior grade work?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
No question of compensation arises. The scale of sorting clerks and telegraphists was framed to cover the whole range of duties proper to the class.
