§ MR. O'REILLY
said, he would beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether Her Majesty's Government will give their favourable consideration to the propriety of extending to all the other public offices the Saturday Half Holiday, which has long prevailed to a certain extent in the Audit and some other Offices, and which, as the Secretary to the Treasury has stated, has been granted to the Post Office, without entailing on the public inconvenience or expense?
§ VISCOUNT PALMERSTON
said, this was a Question of some importance to the public service, and without communication with the heads of Departments he was unable to answer the Question of the hon. Gentleman.
