HC Deb 24 July 1916 vol 84 cc1327-8
68. Mr. BYRNE

asked the Postmaster-General if he will consider the advisability of increasing the wages of Post Office employés in Dublin; if he is aware that an immediate increase is necessary to enable them to meet the increase in the cost of living; and if he will consent to receive a deputation to hear their views on the necessity of an increased wage?


I have already received a deputation on this subject from the National Joint Committee which represents the rank and file of the Post Office Service generally. The case is under the consideration of the Government. I could not treat the case of Dublin specially, and there would be no object in receiving a deputation from Dublin.
