§ Mr. HALL-CAINE
asked the Postmaster-General whether any meetings have yet been held of the Post Office Advisory Council; what interests each member of this council is considered to represent; and what functions the council will fulfil?
§ Sir K. WOOD
The first meeting of the council was held on Tuesday, the 7th instant. The members of the council are appointed by reason of their personal qualifications and not as representatives of particular interests. The council will, in accordance with the recomendation of the Bridgeman Committee, be consulted by me on questions of general policy and be generally regarded as a connecting link between the Post Office and the public.
