§ MR. STEADMAN
I beg to ask the. Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster-General, if any decision has yet been come to on the memorial, dated March last, of six Ilkeston postmen asking for payment of a 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. collection duty, which they do in rotation and for which they have received no remuneration for six years.
§ MR. HANBURY
It appears on inquiry that the application referred to was made to the local postmaster in April last, and the postmen were then informed by him that the arrangements at Ilkeston were under revision, and that their complaint would receive attention. It has not yet been practicable to complete the revision; but the duties of the postmen in question are now being tested, and should it appear that there has been any-deficiency in the past payments for Sunday duty, care will be taken that the postmen receive the amounts properly due to them for the work.
