HC Deb 04 April 1889 vol 334 c1584
MR. CONYBEARE (Cornwall, Camborne)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether he will agree to the Motion for a Return as to the resignation of telegraph clerks, which stands on the Paper for to-day?


There appears to be no departmental objection to the Return which the hon. Member has asked for being granted, except that it will involve a considerable expenditure of time and trouble. At present I am not aware what purpose would be served by giving the Return; but if the hon. Member will inform me on this point, I will consult the Secretary to the Treasury whether we should be justified in incurring the expense involved in its preparation.
