HC Deb 30 May 1895 vol 34 cc645-6

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether any complaints or representations have reached him as to irregularities on the part of the London Postmen in the matter of uniform; and whether any inquiry has been held on this subject by the officials of the Postal Department; and, if so, whether it is probable that he will be in possession of any Report as to the facts, prior to taking the Vote for the Uniform Clothing of the Postal Service?


I have received no representations, except those of the hon. Member, as to irregularities on the part of London Postmen in the matter of wearing their uniform. An inquiry in the matter has been made by a Departmental Committee, which has made a report recommending certain changes with the object of promoting smartness as well as the comfort of the men. These recommendations are now under consideration, but some little time may elapse before a decision can be arrived at.
