The normal hours of attendance for the general clerical classes employed in London headquarter offices are seven a day, but as I have stated in reply to previous questions these hours are frequently exceeded without extra payment. In provincial offices generally, where a large proportion of the clerical staff is employed, the normal hours of attendance are eight a day. As regards the second part of the question, decision must await action on the recommendation made on page 157 of the Third Report of the Committee on National Expenditure.
