§ MR. JAMES O'CONNOR (Wicklow, W.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he will grant the Return relating to Liverpool postmen and stampers, notice for which stands on to-day's Paper.
§ MR. AUSTEN CHAMBERLAIN
can give at once the information desired by the hon. Member. Thirty sorting postmen and stampers at Liverpool will eventually be replaced by thirty sorting clerks and telegraphists. It is not possible to state the exact cost of the change, but it is not expected to be considerable. The change does not entail the employment of any extra clerks at £190 a year or any additional supervising officers. There has not been an increase in the number of complaints from the public, and there is no reason why the change should give rise to any complaints.
