§ Mr. Gammans
asked the Minister of Pensions why temporary messengers in the Ministry of Pensions do not qualify for overtime after a 44-hour week whilst temporary clerks receive overtime payment for work beyond that period.
§ Mr. Buchanan
Temporary messengers are a general service class whose conditions of employment are regulated by agreement between the Treasury and the associations representing the men in question. They are eligible for the payment of overtime for hours worked in excess of 48 a week.
