HC Deb 02 February 1937 vol 319 cc1444-5W
Mr. Rostron Duckworth

asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the varied forms of Post Office business transacted at postal counters, he will consider making a small State grant to postal counter employés who will endeavour to learn the deaf-and-dumb alphabet, with the object of having at least one official in the main post offices of large towns who can be helpful to sufferers from this disability?

Major Tryon

I have no evidence that the cases to which my hon. Friend refers are at all frequent, and I do not think that the special measures suggested would be warranted.
