HC Deb 13 May 1914 vol 62 c1127W

asked the Postmaster-General whether, under the new meal relief regulations, the staff are now only entitled to one relief upon 10 to 2, and 4 to 8, and other similar duties which cover two recognised meal times; and, if so, will he give the matter his further attention with a view to a better system for the health and comfort of the staff being introduced?


The meal reliefs hitherto granted upon duties such as that referred to will not be reduced. The new regulations are not intended to supersede existing rules where the latter are more favourable to the staff.
