§ Mr. POLLOCK
asked the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been called to the delay in giving effect to the Holt recommendations for surveyors' clerks; and whether he will give early attention to the case of surveyors' clerks and give effect to the Holt recommendations from 2nd February, 1914, as included in the Post Office Estimates for 1914–15 and 1915–16, without further delay, pending the consideration of any aspect of the case which may be affected by the Report of the Royal Commission?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
My attention is being given to this case. It is possible that I may be able to take certain action on the Holt recommendations without waiting for the general decision of the Government on the Report of the Royal Commission, but I cannot give any pledge at present.
