§ Mr. REMNANT
asked the Postmaster-General to what positions under the 2212W National Insurance Act officers belonging to the supplementary establishment of the Post Office have been promoted or transferred, the scales of pay attaching to those positions, and the office to which these officers were attached when serving in the Post Office; and whether, before selection was made, opportunity was given to all officers on the supplementary establishment to apply for those posts?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
Seven supplementary clerks in the Post Office have been transferred to positions created under the National Insurance Act, namely, four from the Secretary's Office, two from the Stores Department, and one from the Engineer-in-Chief's Office. One of the officers from the Secretary's Office obtained a post on scale £300—£400; the other officers received appointments on scale £100—£350. The number of appointments offered was too few to justify any general invitation to apply.
