HC Deb 02 July 1909 vol 7 cc777-8W

asked the Postmaster-General whether, in deciding what class any post office falls under, the returns for work units are taken from the present time or from statistics taken at the time of the late inquiry into the postal service; and whether, by the most recent Returns, Ashford should be raised from Class 4 to Class 3?


The units of work published in the Parliamentary Paper "Post Office (Changes in Wages, etc.)" of July last were based on returns of work for the period ended 31st December, 1907. More recent Returns have been taken in the case of Ashford, and the question of its classification is now under further consideration.
