HC Deb 26 February 1894 vol 21 cc1034-5
MR. THEOBALD (Essex, Romford)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether his attention has been drawn to the costly supervision in the Central Telegraph Office Counter and Delivery Offices; whether in the one the clerical staff number 12, and in the other 7; and whether, having regard to the decrease in the number of messages dealt with, and the smallness of the staff supervised, he will take steps to utilise the service of one of the supervisors elsewhere, and so lighten the public cost?


The question of the hon. Member relates to certain details of Office management which cannot, I think, be conveniently dealt with in this House. I have, however, satisfied myself that it would not be wise to make such a reduction as is suggested in the number of supervising officers at the Central Telegraph Office Counter and Delivery Offices.
