§ Sir G. HURST
asked the Postmaster-General why he refuses to recognise the National Federation of Postal and Telegraph Clerks, in view of the hardship which non-recognition inflicts upon 11,000 servants of the Post Office?
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
The membership of the National Federation of Postal and Telegraph Clerks among the grades which it seeks to represent has not yet reached the necessary proportion of the total organised staff in those grades to justify the grant of full official recognition. Some of its constituent guilds, however, are recognised either nationally or locally.
