asked the Minister of Information who is the official who signs letters for the chief postal censor; when was this official appointed to his Department; what are the terms of the appointment; what is the previous experience of this official in censorship work; what is the remuneration for this post; and whether steps can be taken to make replies to letters from relatives of prisoners less rigidly formal?1376W
§ Mr. Bracken
A number of responsible and experienced officers, remunerated according to Treasury scales, are authorised to sign letters on behalf of the chief postal censor. I am obliged to the hon. Member for the suggestion in the last part of the Question and if he will let me have particulars of any specific case which he may have in mind I will look into the matter.
