§ Mr. W. BAKER
asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the complaints about the male retiring room at the Colchester Post Office, the inadequate size and lighting of which were admitted in December, 1923, he will take steps to have the enlargement scheme proceeded with immediately, so that proper accommodation may be provided for the staff in accordance with the recommendations of the Report of the Joint Committee on Accommodation and Fittings?
§ Viscount WOLMER
Pending a general enlargement of the Colchester Post Office premises, for which no provision can be made in the next financial year, the male staff have been offered additional available space which would have increased their retiring accommodation above the amount recommended by the Fittings and Accommodation Committee. As the staff refused to accept the room offered or to discuss the matter apart from the general enlargement scheme, it has not been possible to proceed with the matter.
