HC Deb 19 February 1897 vol 46 c791

On behalf of the hon. Member for York (Mr. J. G. BUTCHER), I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, (1) whether the Report of the Committee appointed to inquire into the alleged grievances of the Post Offices employees has been presented to the Postmaster General; and (2) when it is proposed to lay such Report upon the Table of the House?


The answer to the first paragraph is, Yes. The Report has to be considered in the first instance of course by the Postmaster General, and his recommendations have then to be reviewed by the Treasury. The subject is one involving many details and considerable expenditure—and for that reason some recommendations of the Post Office have only reached the Treasury within the last few days. The Report will be laid upon the Table as soon as all the recommendations of the Post Office have been dealt with.
