§ 63. Major HILLS
asked the Pensions Minister if he will state the total number of hours of overtime worked in the Pensions Ministry each month during the last three months, distinguishing paid and unpaid work?
§ Sir J. CRAIG
The number of hours of paid overtime worked during the last three months is as follows: 99,676 in November, 80,336 in December and 147,443 in January. This overtime work was voluntarily given and was necessary to overtake arrears. The necessity is rapidly disappearing. No record is kept of the many hours of unpaid overtime worked by the higher officials of the Ministry.
