I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that considerable inconvenience is occasioned to those members of the postal staff in Belfast who have to deliver letters, by reason of the fact that they are frequently detailed to a district remote from their own residences and are in consequence unable, or have very little time, to get to and from their homes for meals in the intervals between their spells of duty; and whether arrangements could be made whereby men should the detailed, as far as possible, for duty in districts convenient to their homes.

I am having inquiry made on the subject and will acquaint the hon. Member with the result.
