HC Deb 26 October 1908 vol 194 cc1566-7

To ask the Postmaster-General, if he has yet concluded his inquiries into the question of allowing a weekly half-holiday and reducing the attendance on bank holidays; and how soon are the sub-offices in county Fermanagh likely to have the benefit of a change in the present practice.

(Answered by Mr. Sydney Buxton.) Steps are being taken to restrict the attendance at all offices on bank holidays as far as possible, and the sub-postmasters in county Fermanagh, as elsewhere have been duly informed of the conditions on which a weekly half-holiday can be granted under the terms of the Parliamentary Committee's Report. All applications for that concession are dealt with as they arise.
