76. Captain CRAIG
asked whether Clause 33 of the Government of Ireland Bill applies to officers employed at the various Post Office wireless stations in Ireland; whether, in the event of the Bill becoming law, the conditions of service of these officers will in any respect become altered; whether these officers will retain their positions on the Imperial transfer list; and whether the present regulation which imposes a period of three years' service at one of the Irish stations will remain in force if, and after, the Act becomes operative?
§ The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Herbert Samuel)
The intention is to retain the existing wireless stations in Ireland, together with their staff, under the control of the Imperial Post Office; and the conditions of service will not therefore be affected by the Bill.
