HC Deb 28 May 1903 vol 123 c128

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that the male staff at Armagh Post Office, owing to depletion, are obliged to perform extra work daily, in some cases from 2 a.m. to 10 p.m.; that in other cases the usual relief for dinner has been suspended; and that some men, after a week's work ending at 10.15 p.m. on Saturday night, are obliged to resume work again at 2 a.m. on Sunday morning; and, if so, whether he can take steps to secure to the staff nine hours' rest after the completion of their daily work.


No, Sir. No representations to this effect have reached me from the staff. If the facts are correctly stated in the Question the officers concerned should at once address a memorial to the Secretary, Dublin, or to me.
