HC Deb 29 March 1904 vol 132 c962

To ask the Postmaster-General if he will explain why ladies in the telegraph office in Dublin have been compelled to learn perforating; and will he say if he intends to grant extra remuneration for a, qualification which ladies are not required to possess at all centres.

(Answered by Lord Stanley.) Telegraphists at Dublin, as elsewhere, should be able to work any instrument in use at their office, and there is no reason for granting extra remuneration in the circumstances to which the hon. Member refers.
