§ Mr. TURNER
asked the Postmaster-General (1) if he is able to restore the pre-War conditions in the Borough of Batley as regards delivery of letters four times per day;
(2) if he will consider the enlargement of the postal staff at the Batley Post Office, and thus by absorbing efficient ex-service men be able to provide better postal facilities than at present obtains;
(3) if he will arrange for a later delivery of letters than at present obtains in the Borough of Batley
§ Mr. HARTSHORN
The number of deliveries at Batley is the same as the number now given at towns of similar size and, in fact, at many larger towns. There are no sufficient grounds for enlarging the staff at Batley in order to provide exceptional facilities. The final delivery now completed before business premises are closed for the day, and if it were made appreciably later correspondence addressed to business farms would run the risk of delay.
