§ MR. DALY
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether, seeing that Lord Tweedmouth's Commission recommended 10 per cent. increase of salary every 10 years to head postmasters in the three kingdoms, he can state if this recommendation has been carried out with regard to head postmasters in the three kingdoms; and, if not, will he explain for what reason?
§ THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. R. W. HANBURY,) Preston
The recommendations of the Tweedmouth Committee respecting the salaries of head postmasters in the United Kingdom are being carried into effect, and already a large number of revisions have been sanctioned. Of course, in a large number of cases sufficient time has not elapsed since the date of the last revision to make any change of salary necessary under this rule.
