§ MR. HOWELL
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether time for return to office after completed deliveries is allowed to count in the case of town and auxiliary rural postmen, but not allowed in the case of appointed rural postmen; and whether he can see his way to abolishing this distinction?
§ MR. HANBURY
The Postmaster General is not aware that any such distinction as that referred to by the hon. Member is made. It is the rule for established rural postmen to return to the office after completing their work, and the time so occupied is counted as part of their regular attendance.
