§ Mr. WELLOCK
asked the Postmaster-General what security of tenure Imperial 2092W and International Communications, Limited, have given to those of their employés who were formerly in the service of the Government: and whether these employés have been brought under a scheme of superannuation?
§ Mr. LEES-SMITH
The conditions under which members of the Post Office staff were transferred to Imperial and International Communications Limited give a definite guarantee of employment for a, term of five years or till the attainment of the age of 60, whichever is the shorter period, subject to satisfactory health and conduct. After the expiry of the guarantee, employment can be terminated on terms, including pension rights, at least as favourable, in the aggregate as those to which the staff were entitled under the Crown.
