asked the Minister of Transport whether seeing that certain agreements were come to in August, 1919, between the Ministry of Transport and the railway unions (Railway Clerks' Association and National Union of Railwaymen) respecting the conditions, salaries, etc., of the railway clerical and supervising staff, the terms of which were that the staff were to be classified according to the importance of their duties; that it was also agreed that if the members of the staff were dissatisfied with their grading they were to be allowed to appeal against the same; and that the whole of the railways, except the Midland, Great Western, and London and North Western, have completed their appeals, he will take steps, in view of the great dissatisfaction which prevails at the delay in publishing the results, to have those results that are complete published without delay?


The announcement to the persons affected of the result of the appeals referred to on those railways where all the appeals have been dealt with is now being made.
