HC Deb 04 August 1926 vol 198 c3023W
Viscount SANDON

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will issue a more suitable uniform for telegraph boys in the summer than what is adopted for winter wear?


The uniform supplied to boy messengers is of medium weight, and with the addition of an overcoat in the winter months is considered to be suitable for use all the year round. Various questions concerning the supply of uniform are, however, at present under discussion with the Staff Association concerned, and the point raised by my Noble Friend will be considered in this connection.
