§ 13. Sir NICHOLAS GRATTAN-DOYLE
asked the Home Secretary whether he will issue instructions that the Lost Property Office in London shall remain open on Saturday afternoons, in view of the convenience which would thereby be afforded to working people whose opportunity of making personal inquiry respecting lost property is often confined to that afternoon of the week?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
I regret that I cannot give the instructions suggested by my hon. Friend. To do so would raise difficulties of staffing and would entail considerable expense. I have not received any complaints that Saturday closing gives rise to inconvenience; anyone unable to call at the Lost Property Office during the hours of opening can make application by letter, and every effort will be made to identify his property.
