§ Mr. STEPHEN GWYNN
asked why the telegraph messengers at Cardiff Post Office were forbidden to wear the shamrock on St Patrick's Day; whether any general prohibition has been issued; and, if so, why has this course been adopted?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
There is no prohibition against the wearing of shamrock by Postal officials on St. Patrick's Day, and it is frequently worn. I have no information as to the incident at Cardiff to which the hon. Member refers, but I am making inquiry.
