Mr GROOM - The Public Service Commissioner " has furnished the following replies : -

1.   In Victoria, telegraphists work on Sunday once in seven weeks. 2 and 3. A telegraphist is paid time and a half for Sunday when he works seven days in a week, but if he works six days only and Sunday is one of them, he is not paid, because he has already had one day off in seven, and it is considered desirable to employ more telegraphists rather than to allow the others to work seven days a week.

4.   Yes; the business is consequently small, and the work is not continuous.

5.   No ; in fourteen days a telegraphist works only twelve days.
