71. Sir F. HALL
asked the Postmaster-General what is the number of temporary postmen at present employed in the London postal district; how many of these are men who did not serve in the War and how many are discharged service men; how many temporary employés were discharged during the two years to 31st March last and what proportion of these were ex-service men; whether it is proposed to make further reductions in the temporary staff owing to certain rearrangements of the postal service; and whether steps will be taken to ensure that no temporary ex-service men shall be got rid of until the list of non-servers has been exhausted?
§ The ASSISTANT-POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Pike Pease)
I am having inquiry made in the matter, and will communicate the result to my hon. and gallant Friend.
