HC Deb 13 May 1881 vol 261 c405

asked the Postmaster General, If his attention has been called to the meetings of telegraph clerks held on Saturday last in various towns in the United Kingdom, and that at these meetings Resolutions were passed expressing surprise at the delay which has taken place in the settlement of the questions in dispute; and, whether he can fix a time when he will be able to make a statement with regard to the position of the telegraph clerks?


Sir, I have observed the reports of the meetings to which the hon. Member refers. In reply to the latter part of his Question, I can only repeat that the fullest possible attention has been and is being given to the subject to which it refers, and that immediately a decision is arrived at I will take the earliest opportunity of making it known.
