§ MR. JAMES O'CONNOR (Wicklow, W.)
To ask the Postmaster-General if he can state why the porters of the London postal service were refused an 1001 opportunity of stating their grievances at an interview, seeing that the postal porters were not allowed to give evidence before the Bradford Committee.
(Answered by Lord Stanley.) The case of the porters in the London postal service was carefully considered in connection with the recommendations of the Bradford Committee. I found that, having regard to the nature of their duties, the present scale of pay is adequate, and I did not consider that any useful purpose would be served by a personal interview.
