§ Mr. NEWMAN
asked the Chief Secretary whether, in view of the anxiety prevailing among members of the Royal Irish Constabulary, the postal service, and other branches of the Civil Service in Ireland, he will impress on heads of Departments that, consistently with service regulations, the fullest liberty should be accorded to these public servants to bring before Members of this House the points on which they consider their position and prospects to be in jeopardy?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
Consistently with the Service Regulations the Royal Irish Constabulary and the Civil servants under the control of the Irish Government have full liberty to consider their position under the Bill and to make such representations on the subject as they may consider necessary through the proper channels. The postal service is not under the control of the Irish Government.
