HC Deb 07 March 1938 vol 332 c1548W
Sir N. Grattan-Doyle

asked the Postmaster-General whether it is proposed that postmen engaged in clearing letterboxes shall also be required to dust them out and oil the hinges, or whether such duties are undertaken by other members of the postal service?

Sir W. Womersley

It is already the general practice for postmen engaged in clearing letter-boxes to oil the hinges of the boxes periodically and to brush out the interior of the boxes, and no change in this respect is proposed.
