HC Deb 17 May 1897 vol 49 c629

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, if rural postmen in Ireland whose duties will be increased by the proposed house to house delivery of letters will have their salaries augmented?


The case of every rural postman in Ireland, or elsewhere, whose duty is increased by the proposed extension of the free delivery will be considered on its merits. The salaries of these men are regulated by scale in accordance with the work performed.
