HC Deb 21 February 1907 vol 169 c1004

To ask the Postmaster-General why, seeing that the Order in Council of 15th August, 1890, which required seven hours daily service, allowed thirty-six and, in certain cases, forty-eight week-days of annual leave to Civil Servants drawing salaries or placed on scales of salary in excess of those of the Second Division, that amount of annual leave has not been granted to officers in the postal service, though it has been granted to officers of similar rank in other departments.

(Answered by MR. Sydney Buxton.) The question of the leave granted to officers of the Post Office is under my consideration. The present rules, which are of long standing, are in some respects more favourable and in others less favourable than those contemplated by the Order in Council to which the hon. Member refers.
