To ask the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that a number of postmen at Shrewsbury have been denied opportunities of proving their qualifications for the post of assistant inspector of telegraph messengers in favour of a junior man; and whether he will see that the senior men at Shrewsbury are granted opportunities of showing their fitness for the post before filling up the appointment. (Answered by Mr. Sydney Buxton.) No junior officer will be selected until all those of his seniors who are likely to be among the best qualified have been granted due opportunities of trial. To test all the senior officers would not only create much delay, but probably prejudice the interests of the service.
