§ EARL WINTERTON (Sussex, Horsham)
To ask the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that postmen at Horsham have been asked quite recently to perform telephone duties on Sundays at a uniform rate of 6d. per hour; whether this duty is proper to the class of telegraphists who have refused the offer of the department to accept considerably less than the regulation pay for Sunday work; and whether he will explain the reason for asking the postmen to undersell their colleagues of the telegraph department.
(Answered by Mr. Sydney Buxton.) I am making inquiries into the matter.
