HC Deb 27 May 1924 vol 174 c242W

asked the Postmaster-General the number of parcels dealt with at Mount Pleasant parcels office during the year 1923; the amount of revenue derived; and the number of staff and expenses connected therewith?


The total number of parcels dealt with at the Mount Pleasant parcel office during the year ended the 31st of March, 1924, was 42,420,000; the revenue from these parcels was approximately £1,800,000, but this has to cover, of course, much more than their treatment at Mount Pleasant. The staff employed on parcel work at Mount Pleasant numbered 1,749; and the salaries and wages of this staff amounted to about £380,000. I regret that I am not in a position to furnish particulars of all the expenses incurred in connection with these parcels.
