§ MR. JAMES O'CONNOR (Wicklow, W.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, if the route of postman Patrick Sinnott, who is attached to the Aughrim, county Wicklow, office, has been increased to fourteen miles or more; and, if the increased route entitles him to the rank and pay of an established instead of an auxiliary postman; and, if so, will he recommend Sinnott to the rank and pay to which his increased labour entitles him?
§ MR. HANBURY
The walk of postman Sinnott has recently been increased, but increased by less than a quarter of a mile; the total distance now walked by him is believed to be still under 13 miles. As the man's work extends over a short period, and is completed before 11 a.m., he is not entitled to the rank and pay of an established postman. I shall always be glad to give information privately on small points of detail like this, and I hope the hon. Member will think that is perhaps the more convenient course.
