§ 24. Mr. COMPTON
asked the Minister of Pensions if he proposes to close the sub-office in Pendlebury on the ground of economy; and what is the estimated yearly saving anticipated?
§ Major TRYON
There is not a sub-office of the Ministry of Pensions in Pendlebury, but in the adjacent district of Swinton them is a part-time sub-office. The question of closing this office has been under consideration, and it has been decided to keep it open for the present.
