HC Deb 23 April 1896 vol 39 c1524

On behalf of the hon. Member for the St. Patrick Division of Dublin (Mr. W. FIELD), I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he can state on what date the long promised revision of the Dublin Sorting Office will come into operation; and, if so, how far it will extend towards an improvement of the hours of duty, an increase of salary, a widening of the prospects of promotion, and an increase of First Class Officers?


The Postmaster General regrets that he has not been able to carry out the revision of the staff of the Sorting Office in Dublin yet, nor is he in a position at present to state what changes will be made in connection with the revision. He is daily expecting from the Secretary of the Post Office, Dublin, the further reports required to enable him to come to a decision.
