HC Deb 26 April 1950 vol 474 c101W
85. Mr. Russell

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will now grant recognition to the National Association of Telephone Supervising Officers.

Mr. Ness Edwards

As the hon. Member is no doubt aware, I am reviewing the general question of recognition of staff associations in the Post Office. Claims for recognition from individual associations will be dealt with in the light of the outcome of this review.

86. Sir J. Lucas

asked the Postmaster-General what steps he has taken to check the membership figures submitted to him early this year by the Engineering Officers (Telecommunications) Association; and whether he will state his reasons for doubting the accuracy of these figures.

Mr. Ness Edwards

I have not arranged for a check of the Association's membership figures pending the outcome of my review of the position. I express no opinion as to the accuracy of those figures.
