§ MR. PATRICK O'BRIEN (Kilkenny)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, if there are any, and, if so, what, departmental rules instructing postmen to salute their superiors when they may chance to pass on the street; and, if no such rules exist, can he state on whose authority the postmaster of Harrogate has issued a notice to the postmen instructing them to salute their superiors in future?
§ THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. R. W. HANBURY,) Preston
The Postmaster General has not thought it necessary to issue such an order, in the confident belief that the right judgment of the staff will incline them to act thus of their own accord. The notice at Harrogate was issued by the postmaster in the exercise of his own discretion.
