§ 54. Mr. Viant
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is in a position to state the results of the regional form of Post Office organisation which was set up experimentally in 1936 in Scotland and North-East England following the recommendations of the Bridgeman Committee; and whether he proposes to extend the regional organisation to the rest of the country?
§ Major Tryon
The experiment to which the hon. Member refers has now been proceeding for upwards of two years. The results have been satisfactory in all respects, and I have now decided to adopt the regional organisation permanently in London, Scotland and North-East England and to extend it also to the rest of the country.
