HC Deb 28 March 1956 vol 550 c210W
79. Mr. Lewis

asked the Postmaster-General why there was an increase of 1,991 civil staff in his Department between 1st October, 1955, and 1st January, 1956.

Mr. Alport

To handle increased business and to fill vacancies.

Even so, we are still over 2 per cent. short of our full establishment overall, and even greater shortages exist in particular places and grades.
