HC Deb 14 June 1888 vol 327 c111
MR. FENWICK (Northumberland, Wansbeck)

asked the Postmaster General, Whether he will give the staff of the Central Telegraph Office an opportunity of expressing their wishes as to the present system of payment of salaries, in the same manner as was done recently on the question of long and short duties; and, whether, if a large number of the staff are found to be in favour of weekly, instead of fortnightly, payment of wages, he will take steps to comply with their request?

THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. RAIKES) (Cambridge University)

, in reply, said, that any officer in the Post Office was at liberty to apply to him through the usual official channel; and should the staff at the Central Telegraph Office submit an application he would give it attentive consideration. It would, of course, be premature to give any promise as to future action until the requirements of the Service and the wishes of the officers had received fuller consideration.
