HC Deb 15 May 1873 vol 215 cc2022-3

asked the Postmaster General, If he would state to the House the grounds on which the application to him by the letter sorters of the General Post Office, Edinburgh, for an increase of pay has received no answer, while he has at once granted an increase to the letter sorters of the Glasgow Post Office on a similar application made to him?


In answer to the Question of my hon. Friend, I have to inform him that there was a full and complete Report received from the Glasgow establishment in December last, and it was acted upon in April. From the Edinburgh Post Office no complete, but only a partial Report has been received; and therefore I can only repeat the Answer which I gave to his Question the other day—that until the question can be dealt with altogether, I do not think it expedient to enter upon it.
