HC Deb 07 June 1904 vol 135 c932
MR. JOYCE (Limerick)

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General if he is aware that the overtime performed in the Omagh Post Office during the past year has been frequently arranged by a sorting clerk and telegraphist and performed by that officer and another member of the staff, and that the amount of extra duty performed by those two officers during that period exceeded that of the remainder of the appointed staff; and, if so, will he give instructions to have the overtime at Omagh equally distributed among the sorting clerks and telegraphists at that office.


During the past year the duty of arranging the overtime at Omagh has occasionally devolved upon the senior sorting clerk and telegraphist, but only in the absence of his superior officers. I am satisfied that the extra duty at Omagh has, on the whole, been distributed in the most suitable manner.
