asked the Postmaster-General the number of assistant clerks at present employed in each of the Post Office Departments; the number of promotions of assistant clerks to the second division during the last seven years; and the Departments in which the promoted men had served as assistant clerks?


The authorised establishment of assistant clerks in the various Departments of the Post Office is as follows:—

Secretary's Office 81
Accountant-General's Department 31
Engineering Department—
Engineer-in-Chief's Office 78
Superintending Engineers' Offices 265
London Postal Service 17
London Telephone Service 165
Savings Bank Department 265
Stores Department 209
Dublin—Secretary's Office 6
Edinburgh—Secretary's Office 2
In the last seven years the promotions to the second division have been as follows:—

Assistant clerks serving in the other Departments (except the Accountant General's Department, where they have been introduced only quite recently) are considered for promotion to the class next above them in their own offices, which is not the second division.
