HC Deb 14 July 1902 vol 111 c105
MR. ARTHUR LEE (Hampshire, Fareham)

To ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he will consider the advisability of providing postmen with lighter clothing and headgear during the present hot weather.

(Answer.) Postmen are already supplied with serge uniform for summer wear, which is made as light as possible having regard to the hard usage that it has to bear: and London postmen are provided with a light summer shako. All postmen are allowed to provide themselves with straw hats to wear on exceptionally hot days, and it is not considered that anything more is necessary.—(Post Office.)
