HC Deb 22 November 1911 vol 31 c1347W

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that unestablished assistance is being employed at the Croydon post office while established vacancies are left unfilled; whether this arrangement is a temporary one and, if so, what is the nature of the temporary pressure of work involving such assistance; whether he is aware that on a previous occasion temporary assistants were employed at the same office for years continuously; and whether he can assure the House that so soon as the alleged pressure is removed the unestablished assistance will be dispensed with and the established vacancies filled if necessary?


I am making inquiry and will communicate with the hon. Member in due course.
