§ MR. BIGGAR
asked the Postmaster General, If he is aware that the clerks of Newry Post Office have not received any part of their Christmas overtime for the past three years, although they were called on to furnish a return of same; and, if the above facts are true, will he issue such instructions as will remedy the cause of complaint?
§ Mr. FAWCETT
, in reply, said, he found that it was the case that the clerks referred to by the hon. Member had not received any part of their Christmas overtime for the past three years. He greatly regretted this negligence, and he had given instructions that careful inquiry should be made, and had taken steps to prevent its recurrence.
