HC Deb 21 July 1884 vol 290 c1738

asked the Postmaster General, If it is true that an inequality exists as to the footing upon which the postal and telegraph branches of the Dublin Post Office are placed, the former ranking as a "Metropolitan," and the latter as a "Provincial" establishment; why such an inequality of rank exists; and, will he take steps to have the two branches placed in the same rank?


Although the Dublin Office is sometimes called "Metropolitan" and sometimes "Provincial," there is no such difference in the classification of the two branches of the Office as that implied in the Question of the hon. Member.
