§ Mr. AMMON
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that a recent vacancy for the post of assistant-controller, telegraphs, at Edinburgh was filled by the appointment thereto of an officer from another town; that, as a consequence, each of the grades at the office has been deprived of a promotion which would otherwise have fallen to it; is he aware that this continued treatment of the Edinburgh staff in the matter of superior appointments at their own office is causing dissatisfaction amongst them; and whether steps will be taken to compensate the Edinburgh staffs for the promotions of which they have been deprived?
§ Viscount WOLMER
I am aware of the circumstances referred to. The question of granting the Edinburgh staff a reciprocal promotion is under consideration.
