HC Deb 08 July 1924 vol 175 cc1989-90W

asked the Postmaster-General if he will consider the desirability of the Post Office undertaking the erection of cottages for postmen employed in rural districts?


This question has been considered on more than one occasion, and the conclusion reached has been that, apart from the administrative difficulties involved, it would be undesirable for the Post Office to adopt a policy which might have the effect of placing it in competition with local housing authorities.
