HC Deb 21 March 1951 vol 485 c297W
106. Colonel Gomme-Duncan

asked the Postmaster-General how many new delivery vans have been found necessary to carry out the new scheme of deliveries to areas based on Perth General Post Office; how many sub-post offices are affected; and by how much it is estimated the emoluments of sub-postmasters will be reduced by this change.

Mr. Hobson

Eleven new vans are being employed on delivery and collection work under the scheme for reorganisation and improvement of postal services introduced in the Perth area on 12th of this month. The scheme affects 12 sub-postmasters, 10 of whom will be due for reductions in emoluments of varying amounts aggregating some £600 a year.
