§ MR. HEALY
asked the Postmaster General, If he has received a Memorial, dated 30th November 1883, from the throe Mail Messengers who belonged to the late class of Acting Mail Guards in Ireland; and, if so, when may they expect his reply; and, if he is unable to grant their prayer by giving them even a promise of promotion to positions of nearly equal remuneration to those conferred upon their senior comrades, will he allow them to resign on compensation, or grant them the amount of emoluments which they can show to have forfeited while employed as Acting Mail Guards?
§ MR. FAWCETT
The Memorial referred to has been for some time under my consideration. I believe in a week or 10 days I shall be in a position to arrive at a decision, and I shall communicate the result to the hon. Member for Monaghan.
