§ Mr. Marten
asked the Postmaster-General whether he will suspend postal deliveries on Christmas Day in order that postmen may spend the day, particularly the morning, with their families.
§ Mr. Bevins
I considered this matter very carefully and decided that I should not be justified in withdrawing the Christmas morning deliveries. We shall do 43W everything we can to see that the staff who have to work are released as early in the day as possible.
