HC Deb 03 June 1907 vol 175 cc278-9

To ask the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that at Towcester and at other places ex-telegraph messengers are employed on postmen's work for more than four hours daily, and, although thus complying with the conditions necessary for appointment as assistant postmen, are refused permission to sit for examination; and whether he will take steps to remedy this.

(Answered by Mr. Sydney Buxton.) Inquiry on this subject is in progress. The result shall be communicated to the hon. Member.
