§ 86. Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
asked the Assistant Postmaster-General the number of temporary Post Office employees who have had their employment terminated since 1st July, 1946, and the number of new staff taken on during the same period.
§ Mr. Burke
During the period from 1st July, 1946, to 1st January, 1947, the latest date for which figures are available, there was a net decrease of 1,570 in the temporary staff while the total staff of the Post Office (permanent and temporary) increased by 1,683. On available information I am unable to say how[...]y temporary staff resigned, were dis[...]ged or were appointed to the per[...]tent staff during this period, or how 72W many new recruits were taken on, and the information could not be collected without an inordinate amount of work.
