§ Mr. GLANVILLE
asked the Postmaster-General if he will furnish a Return showing the number of officers of each grade employed in the sorting offices of Liverpool, Glasgow, Birmingham, and Manchester?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
A Return of the exact scope indicated is not available. The number of officers of the various grades attached to the postal establishment of the offices in question is shown in the Appendix to the Estimates for the Revenue Departments, and perhaps those figures will suffice for the hon. Member's purpose. In each case a preponderating number of the force shown would be employed in the sorting office.
