HC Deb 09 April 1804 vol 22 cc1587-8
SIR J. LENG (Dundee)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether the practice of granting a holiday to those engaged in the Customs service, and also the major departments of the Post Office, on the Queen's birthday, can be ex- tended to postmen generally throughout the United Kingdom?


I fear not. The public would not tolerate the post being stopped throughout the country on the day set apart for celebrating Her Majesty's Birthday.
