§ MR. LOUIS SINCLAIR (Essex, Romford)
To ask the Postmaster General whether he is aware that the postmen in Ilford receive a maximum wage which is 6s. a week less than that paid to the postmen in the adjoining parish of Manor Park, where living is cheaper; and whether he will place the Ilford postmen on the same rate of pay as the postmen in the same street in the parish of Manor Park, namely, at from 19s. to 30s. a week.
(Answered by Lord Stanley.) I am aware that such is now the case. I will consider any representation the Ilford postmen may desire to make to me respecting their pay; but I can holdout; no hope that their present maximum of 24s. will be raised to 30s. a week.
