HC Deb 27 July 1904 vol 138 c1337

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General if he will consider individual applications from night telegram messengers in Scotland for good-conduct stripes, provided that the cases of such applicants are certified by their respective postmasters.

THE POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Lord STANLEY,) Lancashire, Westhoughton

Adult night telegraph messengers are ineligible for the award of good conduct stripes, and I am not prepared to consider any applications for extending the privilege to them, either as a class or individually.
