HC Deb 01 July 1913 vol 54 cc1660-1

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that, although the Hull sorting staff has been increased several times for week-day work, the increase has not been made to apply to the sorting staff for the Sunday night mail; and whether, seeing that the duties of the Sunday sorters have grown considerably heavier since their numbers were last decided upon, he proposes to take any action in the matter?

The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Herbert Samuel)

The question of increasing the staff on duty in the Hull sorting office on Sunday evenings has been considered, but the inspections of the duty which have been made by the responsible officers indicate that there is no necessity for such increase.
