To ask the Secretary to the Treasury if he can state whether a weekly Saturday half-holiday is granted in any Government office; if so, in what offices and on what conditions whether the privilege may be extended to all Government offices on the same conditions; and whether the clerks in offices ill which this privilege is not granted are required to attend for the same number of hours on ordinary days as clerks who enjoy the weekly half-holiday. (Answered by Mr. Runciman.) I am unable to add anything to the numerous Answers which I have given to Questions on this subject during the present session.
