Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. CLANCY.

Are we to understand that the Postmaster General and his friends have receded from the position they took at one time, viz., that no statutory increases should lie given, or are these increases given under the system adopted .by this present government on recommendations made by the favourites of the department ? When the government took office they set their face against statutory increases except as a matter of grace on the part of the minister for the time being. Has the Postmaster General abandoned that policy and will the civil servants in future receive their statutory increase under the Civil Service Act, as they did in the past ?
