HC Deb 27 February 1900 vol 79 c1220
MR. J. P. FARRELL () Cavan, W.

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether he has yet received the report of the inspector into the hours of employment in Longford 'post office; whether the hours of the men are alternately from 3 p.m. to 3 a.m., including a night delivery, which could be done by the auxiliary postman as well as the permanent staff; and will he see that the auxiliary man is therefore appointed.


No postman, it appears, attends from 3 p.m. to 3 a.m. An auxiliary postman could not be employed on the last delivery without reducing the average attendance of the two established postmen to less than a full duty, but the attendance of one of the established postmen will be readjusted so as to give him a longer interval off duty.
