§ Mr. Stratton Mills
asked the Postmaster-General if he will make a statement on the grading position after vesting day of staff below middle management and, in particular, the position of the present executive grades in the Post Office.
§ Mr. Stonehouse
Proposals have been made on the future grading structure below the middle management level, and discussions are to begin next month between my officials and representatives of the Reorganisation Committee of the Post Office Staff Sides. Executive Officers are covered by these proposals, but other grades in the executive class are covered by proposals put to the Staff Sides in January, 1968.
