71. Mr. NEWBOLD
asked the Postmaster-General whether during this period of pronounced industrial depression, and 1215 consequent unemployment, he will give instructions to terminate the custom of engaging as sorters on part-time men employed during the day, so setting to private employers the example of taking into their service for part-time only men not otherwise employed during the day?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
The practice of engaging for part-time sorting work in the Post Office men in full employment during the day has been discontinued for some time past, and will certainly not lee revived during the present industrial depression.
