§ MR. C. E. SCHWANN
I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether, in view of the dissatisfaction caused amongst the staff of the Manchester Post Office by the recent promotions of allowance holders to the head postmen's class, thereby passing the allowance holders over the heads of seniors in the service, he will take care that the same system be not employed in the mode of selection of any new appointments about to be filled there.
§ MR. AUSTEN CHAMBERLAIN
I can only refer the hon. Member to the answer which I gave to his Question on the 25th ultimo, and to which I have nothing to add.*
