282 Post Office servants were prosecuted during the 12 months ended 31st October last. This figure is substantially the same us that fur other recent years, and there is no indication of increasing dishonesty. The number of prosecutions in relation to the total number of officers employed is extremely small, and I am glad to have this opportunity of paying a tribute to the high standard of honesty maintained amongst the Post Office staff generally.
