§ Colonel PERKINS
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, in view of the economies effected by the closing of the stamp office at Southampton, he will state how the estimate is made up in detail, and also give the additional cost to the Post Office of the work it transacts in 1600W connection with all transferred stamp business, both at Southampton and at headquarters in London?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
The information asked for in the first part of the question is as follows:
Salaries £777 Office Rent £65
With regard to the second part of the question the work referred to is performed by the Post Office officials in conjunction with their other duties, and no part of the cost of Post Office services is specifically attributable thereto.
