To ask the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that the postmaster of Durham told a deputation of postmen that he had not recommended any of them for promotion because the men in Durham knew each other too well, but that he had no fault to find with the capabilities of the men, and that he had recommended one man for promotion anywhere but in Durham, and that he maintained that a man could not enforce discipline amongst those with whom he had worked and whether, in view of the right hon. Gentleman's statement that he would not countenance the exclusion of well-qualified Durham officers from promotion in their own office, he will look further into this case.

I will make inquiry on the subject of the hon. Member's Question.
