§ MR. J. E. X. O'BRIEN (Mayo, S.)
I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether the seven hours rule in the Savings Bank Department in London will apply to women employed in the Clearing House branch, Dublin; and whether, in view of the fact that women employed in the former Department in London receive a minimum salary of £100, whilst those employed in the latter in Dublin receive only£70, any arrangements are in contemplation to bring the rules of payment more nearly to an equality?
§ *MR. RAIKES
In reply to the hon. Member, I have to say that I have not yet come to any decision on the subject alluded to in the question.
