§ 80. Mr. HUGH BARRIE
asked whether the Londonderry Post Office has been for some time very much under-staffed, with the result that there has been an abnormal proportion of sickness amongst the officials during the past year; whether the overtime worked during the past six months has on an average exceeded ten hours per week for each official; and whether he will make arrangements for increasing the regular staff?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
I am having inquiry made into these matters, and if it appears that any additional force is required it will be provided. An addition to the staff of three male sorting clerks and telegraphists was sanctioned in May of last year.
