The following question stood on the Order Paper in the name of Mr. LINFIELD:125282. To ask the Postmaster-General, whether, in view of the fact that, in addition to the ordinary duty of 48 hours per week, postmasters in residence on official premises are required to attend to the telephone at night for an approximate average of 70 hours per week at a very inadequate remuneration of a few shillings per week, he will consider the question of making other arrangements for this class of work or the granting of a fair remuneration based on the number of hours on duty.
§ Mr. SPEAKER
No; I called upon the hon. Member three times, and I observed that he was otherwise engaged.
