HC Deb 04 July 1890 vol 346 c799
MR. T. H. BOLTON (St. Pancras, N.)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether the day's holiday to postmen to commemorate the Jubilee (of Penny Postage) has or has not been given to the Auxiliary Postmen in the North Western District of the Metropolis; and, if not, whether it will be given to them; and whether it is a fact that Auxiliary Postmen, many of whom have served for 20 years and upwards, have no recognised holiday; and, if so, whether he will consider the question of giving to Auxiliary Postmen a short holiday annually?


In commemoration of the Jubilee of Penny Postage a holiday will be given to the Auxiliary Postmen. It is a fact that at present the Auxiliary Postmen have no recognised holiday; but the question whether they should not have one is now under consideration.
