Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Parcels Rates (Overseas Troops). ( 4 Maw 1940)

Mr George Tryon: I regret that I can add nothing to the answer given to a Question on this subject asked by the hon. Member for Normanton (Mr. T. Smith) on 30th January.

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Parcels Rates (Overseas Troops). ( 4 Maw 1940)

Mr George Tryon: I do not think the hon. Gentleman is aware of the very large reductions that I made some time ago. The rates compare favourably with those in force in the last war and are based on the calculation of no profits whatever.

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Parcels Rates (Overseas Troops). ( 4 Maw 1940)

Mr George Tryon: We are talking about parcels. The Question relates to parcels.

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Egypt (Air-Mail Rates). ( 4 Maw 1940)

Mr George Tryon: I regret that owing to the limited aircraft accommodation available for the conveyance of air-mails on the Empire air routes, I am not in a position to reduce the air postage rate of 1s. 3d. per half-ounce for Egypt and other countries served by these routes even in the case of letters addressed to members of His Majesty's Forces.

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Egypt (Air-Mail Rates). ( 4 Maw 1940)

Mr George Tryon: We should be delighted to lower the rate and enable more letters to be sent, if the accommodation were available. The present rate is kept up because the accommodation is not available.

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Trunk Telephones (Cheap Night Rates). ( 4 Maw 1940)

Mr George Tryon: I regret that I have no information as to the number of 1s. calls between Scotland and London, but the total number of long-distance calls from Glasgow and Edinburgh to all parts of the United Kingdom between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Friday, 23rd February, 1940, was 2,035, compared with 1,895 on the corresponding Friday last year, an increase of about 7 per cent. The volume of traffic and the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Trunk Telephones (Cheap Night Rates). ( 4 Maw 1940)

Mr George Tryon: Because there is a war going on and we have had to hand over a large number of our lines, sometimes permanently, to the Forces. But, on the whole, I am glad to be able to tell the House that about 60 per cent. of the calls at cheap rate go through on demand.

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Trunk Telephones (Cheap Night Rates). ( 4 Maw 1940)

Mr George Tryon: In view of the large number of calls, it is impracticable to keep records of the actual average delays. The exchanges estimate from the calls on hand the probable delays at frequent intervals each night. On calls between London and Edinburgh and between London and Glasgow the average nightly maximum estimated delay was approximately 50 minutes and 40 minutes respectively. There is no doubt...

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Transatlantic Radiotelephone. (26 Chw 1940)

Mr George Tryon: On the introduction of censorship it was necessary to suspend all international telephone services, except for Government use. The possibility of restoring Transatlantic radiotelephone facilities, subject to suitable safeguards, is being examined by the appropriate authorities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Transatlantic Radiotelephone. (26 Chw 1940)

Mr George Tryon: Certainly, I will take that point into account.

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Transatlantic Radiotelephone. (26 Chw 1940)

Mr George Tryon: There are certain suitable cases in which it is allowed for Press purposes.

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Franco-British Postage Stamp. (26 Chw 1940)

Mr George Tryon: As I stated on 31st January in reply to a Question by the hon. Member for Wolverhampton, East (Mr. Mander), arrangements have been made to issue a special series of stamps in May next to commemorate the centenary of the first adhesive postage stamp, and in the circumstances I am unable to consider the issue of another special stamp at the present time. I am, however, in communication with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Telephone Subscribers (Rebates). (21 Chw 1940)

Mr George Tryon: I very much regret that many telephone subscribers have been unable to use their telephones on account of the recent bad weather conditions. My hon. Friend will recognise, I am sure, that it is impossible to ensure immunity of the service from interruption in such abnormal weather. The low rentals now charged for telephone service (about 1s. 6d. a week) leave no margin for any general rebate...

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Temporary Assistants (Belfast). (21 Chw 1940)

Mr George Tryon: The numbers of temporary assistants employed at the Belfast Post Office during the period of Christmas pressure in 1938 and 1939 were 966 and 1,053, respectively, of whom 90 per cent. and 62 per cent., respectively, were ex-service men. On both occasions all suitable ex-service men, whose names were put forward by the Employment Exchange, were engaged. There were, of course, fewer ex-service...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Information.: Post Office (Pensioners, Re-Employment). (14 Chw 1940)

Mr George Tryon: The hon. Member is under some misapprehension. The figure of 5s. 6d. which he quotes is the difference between the present pay of certain re-employed pensioners who are getting their former maximum of 88s. 6d., and the current maximum for their grade of 94s. The pensioners in question are receiving 30s. 6d. more, and not 5s. 6d. less, than the current minimum for their grade.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Information.: Post Office (Pensioners, Re-Employment). (14 Chw 1940)

Mr George Tryon: I am sure that they are not under any misapprehension. The hon. Gentleman is wrong in saying that we are not implementing the decision of the Treasury. The difficulty about answering his Question is that he unfortunately used the word "minimum" while the word appropriate to his argument and the context was "maximum"—which is different.

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Letter Deliveries (Incomplete Addresses). ( 7 Chw 1940)

Mr George Tryon: Local authorities have certain powers to require houses to be numbered and their attention is drawn by the Post Office to cases where the absence of house numbers causes inconvenience or delay in the delivery of correspondence. The Post Office has long stressed the desirability of the display on notepaper of the full and correct postal address of the person concerned, including the number of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Letter Deliveries (Incomplete Addresses). ( 7 Chw 1940)

Mr George Tryon: I think it is of the greatest importance that numbers should be given, and I will consider the suggestion of my hon. Friend.

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Letter Deliveries (Incomplete Addresses). ( 7 Chw 1940)

Mr George Tryon: I do regard this as a matter of importance, and postmasters have instructions to approach local authorities. It is of the greatest inconvenience to postmen, sometimes men taken on for the first time, when people instead of having a proper number call their house "The Cedars" or some such name.
