Mr. TYSON WILSON
asked the Postmaster-General whether he has yet arrived at a decision on the points submitted to him by a deputation from the Supervising Officers' Association that waited on him last year; and, if so, whether his recommendations will date from the carrying out of the Hobhouse Committee's Report?
§ Mr. BUXTON
The matter is still under consideration. As regards the latter part of the hon. Member's question, I would refer him to the reply to a similar question put to me in this House on the 18th ultimo. I then said: "The proposals now under consideration are not founded on the recommendations of the Parliamentary Committee, but are subsequent and additional to them. Any changes which may be made will not, therefore, take effect as from 1st January, 1908."
