§ MR. CLYNES
On behalf of the hon. Member for Merthyr Tydvil, I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether Messrs. Richards, Limited, Aberdeen, are on the list of contractors for his Department; whether he is aware that this firm have dismissed sixty of their workwomen, some of whom have worked for the firm for over 651 thirty years, for having joined a trade union, and refuse to reinstate them unless they give an undertaking to withdraw from the union; and what action he proposes to take in the matter.
§ THE POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. SYDNEY BUXTON,) Tower Hamlets, Poplar
This firm does not at present hold any orders from the Post Office.
