HC Deb 26 March 1914 vol 60 cc550-1

asked the Postmaster-General if the new infirmary at Perth is arranging for the provision of a private posting box, and if the Post Office has intimated that the annual charge therefor will be £3 3s.; and whether, in view of the fact that the infirmary treat members of the Post Office without payment, he can see his way to waive the annual charge for the collecting box?

Captain NORTON

The facts are as stated by the Noble Lord. I regret that the circumstance referred to in the latter part of the question could not be held to justify the course proposed. Infirmary treatment of Post Office servants would not be a charge upon public funds, even if it were not gratuitous. It would have to be paid for by the men themselves.
