HC Deb 17 June 1913 vol 54 c200
54. Mr. HODGE

asked whether senior and junior clerks who were in the employment of the Department of the Postmaster-General were induced to transfer their services to the Unemployment Insurance Department of the Board of Trade by promises that they would receive similar, or as good, conditions of service as prevailed in the Post Office; whether such clerks in the service of the Post Office received, when required, free medical attendance or advice in case of sickness or accident; whether the Board of Trade have repudiated that condition; and, if so, will he reconsider the matter, in view of the promise made, or will he consider the question of some concession equivalent to free medical attendance so as to make the conditions as good as promised?


The conditions upon which these officers accepted service in the Board of Trade were made fully known to them before transfer, and have been carried out. They did not include free medical attendance, which the Board of Trade do not provide for any of their clerical staff.

Forward to
