§ Mr. CLANCY
asked the Postmaster-General whether sick leave is denied to the temporary clerks in the Dublin office, though such leave with pay for six weeks in the year is given to such employés in every other Government Department; and, if so, whether the exception mentioned will continue to be made?
§ Mr. ILLINGWORTH
Under the ordinary Post Office regulations persons employed in a temporary capacity are not eligible for the privilege of sick pay, but are insured under the National Health Insurance Acts. I see no sufficient reason for making an exception to the ordinary Post Office practice in the case of the temporary clerks in Dublin.
