§ 63. Mr. C. S. Taylor
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is prepared to institute the shift system in Eastbourne so that the postmen may have an opportunity of having a half-holiday a week without disorganising the postal delivery on any one day during the week?
§ The Postmaster-General (Major Tryon)
The grant of a half-holiday to postmen in Eastbourne could be arranged by suspending the Wednesday afternoon delivery, but I understand that there would be considerable public opposition to this arrangement. I am not prepared to make an exception in the case of Eastbourne to the conditions applied generally in this connection.
§ Major Tryon
That is a much wider question than the one on the Order Paper. It would involve considerable difficulties both of administration and expense.
§ Mr. Taylor
Owing to the nature of the reply, I beg to give notice that I will raise the matter on the Adjournment.
