§ MR. CLAUDE HAY (Shoreditch, Hoxton)
To ask the Postmaster General whether he is aware that officers of the London Post Office, working on Bank Holiday, 25th instant, have been refused by the Heads of the Department payment in lieu, and are only allowed leave under such restrictions as to lessen considerably the value of the holiday; and whether he will give instructions for carrying out the recommendations of the Tweedmouth Committee, which lays down that an officer that cannot be spared on a Bank Holiday shall have the choice of remuneration or leave in lieu.
(Answered by Mr. Austen Chamberlain.) I have no reason to think that my directions on this matter are not being properly carried out. If any officer feels aggrieved by them, he should memorialise. me in the usual way, and his case will receive my attention.
