HC Deb 01 March 1900 vol 79 c1446

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he has under consideration the awarding of good conduct stripes to a number of Manchester town postmen, who formerly hold the positions of junior postmen, and who have had various interviews with the local postmaster, and sent a petition last September to the Postmaster General on the subject; and when will a decision be given and the stripes issued.


The matter referred to is still under consideration, but the recommendations of the Tweedmouth Committee with regard to junior postmen have already been fully carried out, and there is little if any prospect of being able to comply with the desire of the men in question.
