HC Deb 13 July 1914 vol 64 c1517W

asked the Postmaster-General whether a general revision of duties has taken place at the post office of Wells, Somerset; whether town and rural postmen have now to perform indoor duties, such as inward letter and paper sorting, which were previously performed by sorting clerks; whether rural postmen are now being called upon to work additional time to perform these extra duties, for which no payment is made; and whether this is to be regarded as a permanent or only a temporary arrangement of duties in this post office?


I am making inquiries and will communicate with the hon. Member.
