§ 60. Mr. HACKING
asked the Postmaster-General the number of his staff who have been engaged in dealing with correspondence in connection with the Irish sweepstake on the Grand National; the amount of overtime worked in man hours; and the total cost of this special work up to date?
§ Mr. LEES-SMITH
The staff concerned dealt with the correspondence referred to in conjunction with their ordinary duties; and it is not practicable therefore to furnish precise information on any of the points specified. The total amount of overtime, however, incurred for all purposes is negligible.
§ Mr. HACKING
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that certain members of his staff are busily engaged in organising sweepstakes of their own?
