§ 64. Mr. THURTLE
asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the present position of many of the auxiliary sorters employed in the London postal service who are solely dependent on the earnings of their partial employment, he is now in a position to adopt, either fully or in part, the proposals submitted to him by the men's representatives in March last for an extension of the hours of employment?
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
The Auxiliary Sorters' Association were informed, in May last, that full and effective employment could not be found for auxiliary sorters throughout the extended period suggested by them; and the position in this respect is unchanged. Arrangements are being made, however, for them to be given the opportunity of performing full-time duties during the period of Christmas pressure.
