HC Deb 07 March 1910 vol 14 cc1272-3W

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that one of the Post Office surveyors in Scotland has issued an order compelling the adult night messengers in his district to repair the official cycles; if he will inquire into this matter; whether, as these messengers are primarily employed for the purpose of delivering telegrams and express letters, they are to be regarded as incompetent officers because they are unable to do work which can only be efficiently done by skilled tradesmen; and, in order to allay the feeling of insecurity prevalent amongst these officers, will he reaffirm the statement of the late Postmaster-General that the existing adult night messengers are not to be disturbed?


I will have inquiry made.
