§ Mr. BAKER
asked the Postmaster-General whether he will consider the brighter and more attractive decoration of post offices and the supply of more modern and more artistic fittings?
§ Mr. HARTSHORN
A new scheme of colouring is being adopted for the interior 1609W of post office buildings which will, I think, greatly improve their general appearance; and every effort is being made to overtake the arrears of decorating work which accumulated during and immediately after the War. With regard to the fittings in public offices, to which, presumably, reference is made, I think that the standard designs meet the case. These are provided in all new offices, and are introduced into existing offices as the need for refitting arises.
