HC Deb 04 July 1918 vol 107 c1882W

asked the Postmaster-General whether it can be arranged that the postmen delivering letters in Dublin City can have their off-time in one period, so as to avoid split duties, which necessitate a long day's attendance?


A certain proportion of split duties for postmen is necessary generally in order to adjust the attendances to the work and to avoid waste of force. I cannot make any exception at Dublin to the general rule, but if the hon. Member will furnish me with the details of any attendances which he regards as unduly onerous, I will see if it is possible to improve them.
