HC Deb 17 June 1907 vol 176 c166
MR. WARDLE (Stockport)

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General what railway telegraph offices are open for the transmission of postal telegrams on Sundays; whether the railway companies are paid by the Government for such work; and, if so, are the railway clerks who perform it paid extra for their Sunday duty.


Public telegraph business is transacted on Sundays at nearly 700 railway stations, the railway companies receiving payment for such business at special commission rates. I have no knowledge of the arrangements between the railway companies and their servants as regards pay.
