§ Mr. HAY
asked the Postmaster General whether a decision repeatedly sought by the third-class clerks, Metropolitan Superintending Engineers' Offices, as to the application to their body of the Hobhouse Committee's recommendation issued in 1907, has yet been arrived at; or whether the same is being withheld on account of the inclusion of their class in a unification scheme for London third-class clerks?
§ Mr. BUXTON
Certain difficult questions arising out of the application of the Committee's recommendation are still under consideration, and I am communicating with the Treasury on the subject. No unification scheme for London third-class clerks is in contemplation.
