§ MR. HEYWOOD JOHNSTONE
On behalf of the hon. and learned Member for Plymouth, Sir Edward Clarke), I beg to ask the Postmaster General, why the scheme for regulating the hours of employment of the sorting clerks in the Plymouth Post Office, which was approved by the Surveyor in 1894, and returned to Plymouth sanctioned in March last, has not been brought into force; and, whether he can say if it will be brought into operation at an early date?
§ MR. ARNOLD MORLEY
Some delay in giving effect to the scheme referred to has unfortunately occurred owing to a misapprehension on the part 649 of the officers charged with carrying out the scheme, but I am now informed that the new arrangements of duties will take effect on Sunday next.
