§ 18. Mr. McENTEE
asked the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been directed to the discontent amongst the staff employed in the Central Telegraph Office caused by recent promotions which involved the passing over of a number of fully qualified senior officers; and whether he is prepared to review the existing methods of selection in order to allay this discontent?
§ Sir K. WOOD
The methods of selection for promotion in the Central Telegraph Office, as elsewhere in the Post Office, are in accordance with a scheme agreed upon by the Post Office Whitley Councils. The scheme has been found to work equitably, and I see no ground for reviewing it.
§ Mr. McENTEE
Will the right hon. Gentleman get into communication with the organisations representing these people, to enable them to put their point of view?
§ Mr. HANNON
Is it not a fact that the relations at present between the General Post Office and its staff are at as high a level as at any time in the Post Office history?
