HC Deb 29 June 1899 vol 73 c986

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster-General, whether the entire amount of 3s. a week, allocated for the salary of the recently appointed postman at Newbliss, County Monaghan, goes to that official exclusively, or is a portion of it, and how much, devoted to another purpose; can he now say what are the precise duties this postman is expected to perform for the allocated sum of 3s. a week; and on what basis of living is the salary calculated.


The entire amount of 3s. a week is paid to the postman at Newbliss referred to in the hon. Member's question. This postman works for sixty-five minutes a day.
