HC Deb 08 May 1924 vol 173 c612
64. Major BURNIE (on behalf of Major HORE-BELISHA)

asked the Postmaster-General the total number of employés of all grades and branches in the Post Office and the percentage of these who are Regular ex-service men of the Regular Forces?


The total staff, male and female, employed in the Post Office (including industrial staff) on 1st May, 1924, amounted 210,496, of whom 94,081 (or 58 per cent. of the total male staff) are ex-service men. It would not be possible, without elaborate inquiry, to ascertain what percentage of this number are Regular ex-service men.
