§ Mr. GILLIS
asked the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been called to the accusation of favouritism which has been made in an organ of the Post Office workers against the Post Office administration at Brighton; and whether, having regard to the dissatisfaction which continues to exist in the Brighton office in reference to the whole of the recent promotions, he will institute a rigorous inquiry?
§ Mr. PEASE
I am aware that charges of favouritism have been made in connection with the selection of officers for1784W promotion in the Brighton Post Office. All recommendations for promotion are subject to careful scrutiny at headquarters before they are approved. I have no reason to believe that these charges have any foundation.
