§ MR. FLAVIN (Kerry, N.)
To ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that in offices where overtime is worked assistant clerks (new class) doing similar work to second-division clerks receive the same overtime rates as messengers, viz., 9d. per hour; and whether he proposes to take any steps to remove this inequality.
§ MR. FLAVIN
To ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that messengers are allowed twenty-one days annual leave, while assistant clerks (new class) receive only fourteen days during the first ten years of service, and a maximum of eighteen days throughout the remainder of their service; and whether he proposes to remedy this inequality.
(Answered by Mr. Victor Cavendish.) I would refer the hon. Member to my reply to his Question of yesterday† on the subject of assistant clerks.
