§ CAPTAIN NORTON (Newington W.)
J. beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, whether he will cause an inquiry to be made with a view to ascertaining whether the recommendation of the Tweedmouth Committee, that it is undesirable that the wages of a supervising officer in the Postal Department should be lower than the wages of the class that he is supervising, is being carried out.
§ THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. AUSTEN CHAMBERLAIN,) Worcestershire, E.
The Postmaster General does not think any enquiry necessary on this point, as it is a general rule of the Service that the scale of supervising classes should exceed that of the classes subordinate to them. If the hon. Member can cite any instance in which this rule is not observed, he will perhaps be good enough to let the Postmaster General know of it.
