§ Mr. JOYNSON-HICKS

§ Mr. HOBHOUSE
Out of a total of approximately 6,500 members of the engineering staff, including the electrical staff, transferred from the National Telephone Company, about 446 have resigned since 1435W the 1st January, 1912. The number given includes 125 resignations from the unskilled staff, which is necessarily, more or less, a transient force.
