HC Deb 01 April 1943 vol 388 c354W
Sir G. Mitcheson

asked the Postmaster-General how many redundant clerical officers and higher clerical officers are there in the London Telecommunications Region?

Mr. Grimston

Various economies have recently rendered possible a reduction of about 250 in the clerical staff of the London Telecommunications Region. Over 200 of the persons concerned have already been absorbed. There remain for disposal 21 clerical officers, of which nine are awaiting call up for the Forces, and 25 higher clerical officers. They are being absorbed as quickly as circumstances permit and are being employed for the time being on training and to reduce, overtime.
