§ Sir G. PENNY
asked the Postmaster General the number of Post Office servants dismissed for dishonesty during 1928 and 1929, respectively; and whether he will seek the co-operation of the police authorities in maintaining an accurate record of the addresses of those dismissed, in view of the fact that he does not consider his Department is able to do so owing to the constant changes of address which he finds are being made?
§ Mr. LEES-SMITH
The total number of Post Office servants dismissed for dishonesty and other criminal offences during 1928 was 378, and during 1929, 326. I have made inquiries, but I regret to say that the hon. Member's suggestion is not practicable.
