HC Deb 19 June 1882 vol 270 c1614

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury, Whether it is true that the proposals made by the Postmaster General to the Treasury for increasing the pay of the letter carriers have been rejected, but that the right hon. Gentleman is still pressing for an equitable settlement of the question; and, if not, what delays the announcement of a decision so often promised and so anxiously expected?


Sir, the statement quoted by the hon. Member is inaccurate. The proposals which have been made and discussed included many details. Most of these have been settled; one or two are still pending, but an early decision may be looked for.
