HC Deb 23 February 1931 vol 248 cc1764-5
64. Mr. BOWEN

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware of the dissatisfaction prevailing in his Department because of the non-appointment to the clerical grade of the 270 Post Office clerks who remain from the 1926 competitive examination; and whether, having regard to his partial recognition of the case by securing 50 clerical appointments for the number of officers originally available, he will recommend that the appointment of the 270 men as clerical officers would be justified?


I am afraid I can add nothing to the reply which my hon. Friend gave last Tuesday. While I am not without sympathy for the disappointed competitors, I cannot see my way to recommend any further concession.


Owing to the unsatisfactory nature of the reply, I beg to give notice that I shall call attention to this matter on the Adjournment of the House on the earliest possible occasion.
