HC Deb 25 February 1904 vol 130 c1003

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General if he is aware that dissatisfaction exists in the Dublin sorting office with reference to the annual leave arrangements for the coming year by which large batches are listed for leave in March, April, and October, and comparatively few in the summer months; and whether, in view of the practice of the Department to allow an equal number out in each term of leave as is the case in the telegraph branch in Dublin, and of the fact that although a memorial from the staff was presented to the Controller, the leave is being rearranged on practically the same plan as the original one which has been withdrawn, he will take steps to provide a system of annual leave distributed equally over the summer months.


The circumstances to which the hon. Member refers have not been brought before me; but I will make inquiry.
