§ Mr. LLOYD
asked the Postmaster-General (1) whether, in the coming transfer of the National Telephone service to the Government, transferred services from the company to the Government will in all cases of established staff rank for pension; and (2) whether, in the coming transfer of the National Telephone service to the Government, all employés of the National Telephone Company will be put on the establishment of the Government service, except in such cases where similar grades are not on the establishment of the Government service?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
A Bill dealing with the matter will probably be introduced shortly after Whitsuntide, and it would, I think, be premature to give the hon. Member any information beyond that which is contained in the memorandum read in this House on the 9th of August, 1905, by the then Postmaster-General.
