HC Deb 02 October 1924 vol 177 cc336-7W

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware of the unsatisfactory nature of the sectional engineer's office, Post Office Engineering Department, Bateman Street, Cambridge. where the rooms are overcrowded and the sanitary arrangements quite inadequate; that the building, as a hole, is a private house in a terrace and totally unfit for the purpose for which it is being used; and will he investigate the disadvantages from which the staff suffer, with a view to remedial action?


I am aware that congestion exists in the sectional engineer's office at Cambridge, and search is already being made for suitable alternative premises. I will consider whether any steps can usefully be taken in the meantime to improve the existing conditions.
