Mr JOHNSON asked the Acting PostmasterGeneral, upon notice -

1.   Is it a fact that in the General Post Office, Sydney, General Division officers are employed in clerical positions, whilst officers who have passed their examinations for the Clerical Division are employed in General Division . work in the Mail Branch. If so, what is the reason for such an anomaly?

2.   Is it a fact that clerical officers in the Mail Branch, who are engaged in work classified as belonging to the General Division, have to submit to be represented on the Appeal Board by the General Division representative?

3.   Does the practice of keeping clerical officers employed in General Division work militate against the advancement of such clerical officers to fill positions in the Clerical Division?

4.   Is it a fact that numerous vacancies have occurred in the higher grades of the Department's service since the classification, affording opportunities for the promotion of officers from the5th to the 4th grade, and that only one such officer has been so promoted in that period ?
