HC Deb 28 June 1906 vol 159 cc1113-4
MR. STEADMAN (Finsbury, Central)

To ask the Postmaster-General what are the arrangements between the Post Office and the railway companies for paying any compensation on account of accident that may be awarded to postal employees while engaged on the-travelling post office; whether, in the event of damages being given to a postal servant in a court of law on account of such accidents, the post office pay a proportion of such damages; and, if so, what is the proportion.

(Answered by Mr. Sydney Buxton.) The arrangements are not always the same, but in most cases any compensation awarded is paid by the railway companies.
