HC Deb 24 January 1940 vol 356 c600W
Mr. Woodburn

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is prepared to make a uniform working day for clerical officers in all departments of the telephone service in Edinburgh, and so remove anomalies existing at present between different departments for members of the same grade?

Major Tryon

The hours of attendance for clerical staff outside London are normally 44 a week, and these hours apply to the telephone manager's office at Edinburgh as elsewhere. In the headquarter offices of the Post Office in Edinburgh the hours have for many years been 42 a week, but the staff were warned in 1936 that it might be necessary to bring these conditions into line with those in other regional directors' offices outside London by increasing their hours.
