§ MR. PICKERSGILL (Bethnal Green, S.W.)
asked the Postmaster General, What period of annual leave is authorized by the Treasury for the clerks in the Receiver and Accountant General's Office?
§ THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. RAIKEs) (Cambridge University)
In reply to the hon. Member's Question, I have to state that the period of leave enjoyed by the clerks in the Receiver and Accountant General's Office is one month in the course of the year. In this privilege hitherto a share has not been granted to five officers who, though called clerks, have never been employed on clerical duties. But as I am unwilling to perpetuate what may be thought an invidious distinction, I have directed that, in future, the same privilege shall be extended to these officers.
