I'lie Postmaster-General, referriug to his inquiries concerning the re lations existing between the different bodies conuected with the Depart ment, says be was discovered inex cusable weakness, lack of judgment and decision, and a system which permitted the blame to be passed on from one to other until it rested on those withont responsibility. The present system of deputations spelt chaos, irritation and discontent, and could not continue. There had been i a great number of instances of com- | plaints or grievances which ought to be settled by the heads of the re spective departments, instead of'be ing brought under the notice of the Postmaster-General, He emphasis ed that arbitration awards must be recognised by both sides in any dis pute about the interpretation of awards.
