HC Deb 01 June 1908 vol 189 c1527
MR. SLOAN (Belfast, W.)

To ask the Postmaster-General if he intends to adopt the recommendations of the Select Committee on Post Office Servants permitting the closing of sub-post office for a weekly half-holiday in districts where such is the general practice in other establishments.

(Answered by Mr. Sydney Buxton.) The recommendation of the Committee that a weekly half-holiday should be allowed in those cases only where the private business of the sub-postmaster is also closed will be carried out as far as possible.
