HC Deb 03 December 1906 vol 166 cc540-1
MR. SEARS (Cheltenham)

To ask the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that at Cheltenham postmen are forbidden to hang clothing upon the hooks in the retiring room apparently provided for that purpose; whether he is aware that, in consequence of this order, the men are obliged to put their capes, etc., in their lockers, and that in five cases damage to the capes has resulted, and the men concerned have been fined 2s. each; and whether, in the circumstances, he will order the repayment of this money.

(Answered by Mr. Sydney Buxton.) I will inquire into this matter and communicate with the hon. Member.
