HC Deb 08 December 1890 vol 349 c694
MR. FRASER-MACKINTOSH (Invernessshire)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether the Post Office regulations permit of outsiders holding Bible classes, prayer and temperance meetings, and such like, within those rooms appropriated for dining rooms or reading rooms in the larger post offices?


There are no Post Office Regulations on the subject to which the hon. Member calls attention. The practice has been to allow officers of the Department desiring such facilities the use of rooms which could conveniently be employed for any objects of a beneficial character in which the staff might happen to be interested. The participation in such meetings of persons not officially connected with the Service is invariably conditional upon the consent of the proper authorities, who also exercise due care that there is no interference with the right use and enjoyment of the rooms by other members of the staff.
