§ 92. Colonel BURN
asked the Postmaster-General why the vacancy for the position of assistant superintendent at the Torquay Post Office has remained unfilled since the 21st September, 1913; and whether, in view of the inconvenience already experienced, he will take steps to see that the post is filled without further delay?
§ Mr. HOBHOUSE
It has, I regret to say, proved impossible to promote a local officer at Torquay to the position of assistant superintendent. Difficulty has been experienced in selecting a suitable officer from another office, but I hope that it will be possible to fill the vacant appointment shortly.
