HC Deb 15 June 1893 vol 13 cc1058-9
SIR J. LENG (Dundee)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether the precedent established at Her Majesty's Jubilee, whereby postmen were granted a day's holiday, to be taken as the exigencies of the Service permitted, can be followed on the occasion of the approaching Royal marriage, and the postmen granted a privilege always accorded to the major establishment of the Post Office and all the Government Offices?


The consideration of this question raised by my hon. Friend depends upon whether the occasion referred to is proclaimed as a public holiday, as was the case at the Jubilee. I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply of the Prime Minister on the 9th instant.
