HC Deb 18 March 1887 vol 312 cc730-1
MR. J. ROWLANDS (Finsbury, E.)

asked the Postmaster General, Whether the order of 30th November, making uniform the rule as to annual holidays, has been extended to sorters of the London Postal Service; and, if not, whether he will place those officers on the same footing as the officers in Dublin and Edinburgh?

THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. RAIKES) (Cambridge University)

The order of November last to which the hon. Member refers applied only to Provincial offices. The question whether it should apply to sorters of the London Postal Service, and, if so, to what extent, is now being considered.
