HC Deb 30 May 1951 vol 488 c19W
79. Mr. Grey

asked the Postmaster-General when he expects the Committee on Recognition of Post Office Grades to present its report.

Mr. Ness Edwards

I understand from the Chairman that, in view of the mass of written evidence already received and of the numerous requests to give oral evidence, it is likely to be some months before the Committee will be in a position to present a report.
