§ 2. Mr. Lewis
asked the Postmaster-General what action he has taken during the past few weeks to deal with the delivery of the additional amount of mail to 10, Downing Street, S.W.1; whether he will state the extra amount of staff and/or man-hours put on to the sorting and delivery of this mail; and whether he will give an estimate of the percentage of increase of mail compared with last May.
§ The Postmaster-General (Dr. Charles Hill)
No special measures were necessary. An organisation which delivers over 30 million letters a day can face with equanimity temporary increases in individual deliveries, whether to the Prime Minister or to the hon. Member for West Ham. North (Mr. Lewis).
§ Captain Pilkington
Does this interest by the hon. Member for West Ham, North (Mr. Lewis) in No. 10, Downing Street mean that one day he hopes to go there?
