asked the Minister of Health the minimum number of hours per week which clerical officers in the employ of local authorities must work under existing agreements; whether or not it is the general practice of local authorities to pay for hours worked by clerical officers in excess of the weekly minimum; and whether he will issue any guidance to local authorities on the matter?
