HC Deb 03 February 1902 vol 102 c200
MR. O'DOWD (Sligo, S.)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether postmasters and postal telegraph officers in Ireland are bound by the regulations of the Department to keep in their offices sufficient change to meet public requirements, and if not, whether steps will be immediately taken to provide for this being done.


Postmasters in Ireland are supplied with sufficient cash to meet ordinary requirements. They are not bound to give change, but they should not refuse to do so if they can give it conveniently. If the hon. Member will furnish particulars of any case in which inconvenience has been caused owing to a postmaster not keeping sufficient change in his office, inquiry will be made.


I will forward some cases to the hon. Gentleman.
