HC Deb 28 June 1904 vol 136 cc1403-4

To ask the Postmaster-General if he is aware that the adult night messengers in Scotland have to attend specially during the day to be paid their weekly wages; and, if so, seeing that these men have to work a full night duty, will he direct that in future they † See (4) Debates, cxxiv., 553. shall receive their pay when ceasing duty on Saturday morning.

(Answered by Lord Stanley.) I find that in certain cases the wages of the adult night messengers in Scotland are already paid in the manner suggested by the hon. Member. I shall be glad to consider any application that may be made by the messengers in other places for the adoption of a similar plan.
