§ Mr. Bishop
asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications how many men and how many women, respectively, are employed by the Post Office, specifying in what grades, executive, administrative, clerical, manual, &c., and what are the respective percentage these figures represent.
§ Mr. Chataway
The Post Office tells me that on 1st October, 1971, there were 417,756 staff employed, of whom 76.75 per cent. were men. As there are over 200 different grades of staff in the Post Office, I should not feel justified in asking for a detailed breakdown.
