HC Deb 25 October 1939 vol 352 c1429W
Mr. Joel

asked the Postmaster-General whether he can state the total number of men and women who have had to be added to the Post Office staff as the result of the imposition of postal and telegraph censorship?

Major Tryon

The War Office is responsible for the postal and telegraph censorship and for the provision of the staff actually employed on censoring work. The Post Office is only responsible, for handling the letters and telegrams which are liable to censorship, and this has involved the addition of some 70 officers.
