§ 47. Mr. Viant
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that a number of complaints have been made in respect of delay in the delivery of telegrams from the Gosport office; and whether he is satisfied that the number of messengers is adequate, in view of the office being so far removed from the large housing estates?
§ Major Tryon
The number of telegrams delivered from the Gosport Post Office during the past six months was nearly 14,000, and during that period only two-complaints were received of delay in delivery. Judged by the usual standards, the messenger staff at the office is fully adequate for the delivery work to be performed.
