§ 97. Mr. ROSE
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that the work in the Aberdeen Post Office has greatly increased; whether he refused to consider the reclassification of this office during the period of the War; whether he will state the units of work for the Aberdeen office immediately prior to the War and at the present moment; and whether the increase is sufficient to warrant the office at Aberdeen being placed in a higher class?.
§ The ASSISTANT POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Pease)
No returns of work were taken during the War which could serve as a basis for the reclassification of offices. The latest unit figures at present available for Aberdeen are under 1,700, the number which would be required to raise the office to a higher class. I will have further inquiry made and communicate with the hon. Member.
