HC Deb 01 May 1891 vol 352 c1846
MR. WALLACE (Edinburgh, E.)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether, from the 1st July last year till the beginning of this year, four public holidays have been paid for to clerks in England and only three in Scotland; and, if so, whether any compensation will be given to the Scottish clerks for the loss of the day's payment?


Arrangements have been made that for the future Post Office servants in Scotland shall be given holidays on fast days or other days, generally observed as holidays in Scotland, in lieu of those days which are held to be Bank Holidays in England but not in Scotland, so that the number of holidays granted in the two Divisions of the Kingdom will be the same.
