§ 46. Major ARCHER-SHEE
asked the Prime Minister whether any representations have been made to him by postal ser- 1612 vants in Ireland as to their future conditions of service if the Government of Ireland Bill were to become law; whether, if these representations have been received, they indicate apprehension as to the prospects of these postal servants; and what steps he proposes to take to safeguard their future prospects?
§ The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Herbert Samuel)
I have been asked by the Prime Minister to answer this question. Representations of the nature indicated have been made both to the Prime Minister and to me, and I have invited a deputation of the staff concerned to place their views before me.
§ Major ARCHER-SHEE
In the event of the Government of Ireland Bill becoming an Act, will these officials be allowed to retire on compensation if they so desire?
