§ MR. O'SHAUGHNESSY (Limerick, W.)
To ask the Postmaster-General if he will take steps to recommend to the Select Committee appointed to inquire into the question of the grievances of Post Office servants the necessity for increasing the pay of postal messengers like John Condon, of Ballyhahill West, in the county of Limerick, who, for six days in the week, walks on an average six miles a day, and whose hours of duty are from 8.30 o'clock a.m. to 10 o'clock a.m., and for which he receives 4s. 6d. per week.
(Answered by Mr. Sydney Burton.) The messenger referred to is a servant of the sub-postmaster of Ballyhahill and is not directly employed by the Department. It is a question for the Committee to consider whether such cases come within their reference.
