Counting the hours


Sir, – Following on from the recent recommendation that a large number of public sector staff should work two less hours a week (“Many public servants look set for shorter working week”, News, January 11th), I assume that this recommendation will be acted upon in due course.

Assuming that is the case, I am curious as to how this will be monitored. Given that most of the staff are already working from home, one wonders how anyone will actually verify that they are working fewer hours. – Yours, etc,
