HC Deb 07 March 1927 vol 203 c857W
Colonel DAY

asked the Postmaster-General the number of officers and personnel, together with their cost, employed for the purpose of checking telegraph charges?


The staff engaged in the accounting offices in checking the charges on inland telegrams averages 24, at a cost, including supervision, of about £5,000 a year. It is not practicable to give figures as regards foreign telegrams, the work of checking the charges being inseparable from other accounting work relative to such telegrams.
