§ 59. Mr. CLYNES
asked the Postmaster-General whether, it is his intention to introduce a system of split duties for the women operators in the Manchester Telephone Exchange; whether he is aware of the decision of a recent Committee in regard to these duties in the large centres; and whether there are any special features due to war conditions which justify such a departure from the established practice?
§ Mr. HOBHOUSE
I would refer the hon. Member to my right hon. Friend's reply to a similar question by the hon. Member for Leigh on 16th March last. The circumstances are unchanged.
