§ MR. YOXALL) (Nottingham, W.
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster-General, what is the correct maximum salary for the clerks' class at 54s. per week offices, the officers of winch class are employed entirely upon supervising and technical duties in the Postal Service.
§ MR. HANBURY
The maximum salary for clerks at all provincial offices—irrespective of the wages of the rank and file—is determined by the number of established officers, and has no necessary relation to the maximum wages of the rank and file. At the few offices where the rank and file have a maximum of 54s. a week the maximum salary of the clerks at present ranges from £160 to £175 a year.
