HC Deb 26 February 1912 vol 34 c1160W

asked the Postmaster-General whether the Irish Post Office stores department has been placed under Birmingham control; and, if so, will he state what changes have been made in respect to supplies, officials, and administration?


The Dublin depot of the stores department of the Post Office has not been placed under "Birmingham control." The control is vested in the Controller of Stores at headquarters in London, but the immediate superintendence of all the provincial depots—Edinburgh, Dublin, and Birmingham—is exercised by one of his officers, who, for convenience of travelling, is stationed at Birmingham. The only change contemplated in the work so far as Ireland is concerned is an increase in the quantity allotted to the engineering repair shop at Dublin.
