HC Deb 23 June 1910 vol 18 c493

asked whether, up to the middle of May, 1910, unpaid learners were being used in the Dundee telegraph office to send and receive public messages; whether they are now being paid 12s. per week; whether, in consequence of cheap or unpaid labour being employed in the instrument room, telegraphists of many years' experience are systematically listed for sorting duties, causing many extra late and night duties for the remainder of the male telegraph staff; and whether he will cause inquiries to be made with a view to an early remedy?


I am making inquiries on this subject.
