HC Deb 16 February 1888 vol 322 cc542-3
MR. CHANNING (Northampton, E.)

asked the Postmaster General, Whether effect has yet been given to any of the recommendations made in the Report of the Select Committee on Sunday Postal Labour; and, if so, in what way?

MR. DIXON-HARTLAND (Middlesex, Uxbridge)

asked, whether the right hon. Gentleman was aware that the Report of the Committee was by no means unanimous?

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

Yes, Sir; I am quite aware of that. In reply to the Question on the Paper, I have the honour to state that the inquiries I have thought it necessary to make relative to the Sunday services affected by the Committee's recommendations are not yet complete; and that although I hope very soon to be in possession of all the information which I have asked for, it will, I think, be better to await this before announcing what steps appear desirable to adopt, in view of the Committee's recommendations.
