§ ٭ MR. DOBBIE
(Ayr Burghs) I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the fact that the amalgamation of the postal and telegraph staffs, known as the dual system, has been abandoned in the large telegraph offices of the country, he will state the reasons for the retention of that system in the Glasgow office, and take steps to place this office on a similar footing to offices in the same class.
§ THE POSTMASTER-GENERAL (LORD STANLEY,) Lancashire, Westhoughton
The hon. Member is under a misapprehension in thinking that the amalgamation of the postal and telegraph staffs has been abandoned at the large offices in the country.
