HC Deb 14 March 1918 vol 104 c468

asked the Postmaster-General whether he has received a resolution from the local joint committee of the associations of the Manchester and district post-office workers asking the Government to enter into negotiations with the National Joint Committee of Post Office Associations, with a view to an early application of the principles of the Whitley Report to the Post Office; and, if so, what action he proposes to take in the matter?


My right hon. Friend has received the resolution referred to. The general question is under the consideration of the Government, and he is not in a position at present to make any further statement.
