§ Lord C. BERESFORD
asked the Postmaster-General whether lockers may be supplied at post offices where the total staff reaches 200; and, if so, as the staff at Portsmouth post office is over 400, and has expressed a desire for long lockers, whether he can see his way to grant their request?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
In cases where the total adult staff employed at a post office is 200 or more, the question of supplying long lockers receives consideration. It has already been fully considered as regards the Portsmouth head post office, but the circumstances in this case are not such as to show any special need for the provision of long lockers in place of the existing small lockers, and the change could not be made without undesirable curtail of space. It has accordingly been decided not to take any steps in the matter at present.
