§ Mr. SMEDLEY CROOKE
asked the Postmaster-General what is the total number of sick-leave absences, and their average duration, among male and female established staff during the last five years?
§ Viscount WOLMER
I have no information as to the number of separate sick absences of the established staff of the Post Office, and I cannot therefore state the average duration of a sick absence. The average numbers of days of sick leave taken by established officers in each of the years 1922–1923 were as follow:
— Male. Female. Disabled. Others. 1922 … 13.7 10.2 721 1923 … 13.4 9.1 11.7 1924 … 14.9 10.4 12.7 1925 … 15.6 10.7 12.5
The analysis of the returns of Sick Leave for 1926 is not yet complete.
