HC Deb 06 July 1903 vol 124 c1379

To ask the Postmaster-General whether, in the event of a postman's walk having increased in consequence of building and other causes, and his time having exceeded the recognised eight-hour day enough to cause a revision of his walk, payment would be made to him for the overtime worked continuously prior to the revision.

(Answered by Mr. Austen Chamberlain.) As soon as a postman's attendance exceeds the proper limit, his duty should be reduced; and if any postman is in this position he should apply to his postmaster on the matter.
