HC Deb 08 July 1897 vol 50 c1365

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he is aware that the arrangement of giving to postmen and officials nine clear hours off duty is frequently disregarded; and whether this complaint will be remedied?


There are some cases in which it has not yet been found practicable to afford a clear interval of nine hours off duty to postmen and sorters. But these cases are being considered with a view to arrangements being made to carry into effect, so far as the circumstances will admit, the recommendations of the Committee on Post Office Establishments.
