HC Deb 22 November 1888 vol 330 cc1826-7
MR. TUITE (Westmeath, N.)

asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether, having regard to the fact that the Saturday half-holiday has been withdrawn from the Civil Service writers, he can hold out a hope to restore this small privilege to writers who have been for many years in the enjoyment of the same, and thereby assimilate their condition in this one respect to that of the Established Clerks and other classes of the Service?


in reply, said, he thought it better to make no promise with regard to this particular branch of the question until the Government had been able to consider to what extent and in what manner they would give effect to the recommendations of the Royal Commission.
