§ Sir J. REMNANT
asked the Postmaster-General if the National Federa- 1242W tion of Postal and Telegraph Clerks has now been officially recognised by his Department as a properly constituted postal association; how many branches has it in London and the provinces; and what is its membership?
§ Mr. PEASE
The National Federation of Postal and Telegraph Clerks is not an officially recognised body, although certain of its branches in London are allowed to discuss matters with the local postmasters. I have no information as to the total number of the branches: I understand the total membership in January last was about 6,000.
