§ MR. MAURICE HEALY (Cork)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, if the decision in the case of the Stafford indoor postmen that they may carry 866 with them on their new scales 2s. of the allowance which they received prior to 1st April, 1897, will be applied to the Cork indoor postmen, the circumstances of whose case are similar?
§ MR. HANBURY
It is not intended to apply to the Cork postmen the decision which was given in the case of the Stafford men. There is a very important difference between the circumstances of the two cases, that of Stafford being quite exceptional.
