§ MR. NANNETTI
I beg to ask the Postmaster-General if it is the intention not to make the proposed increase of the minimum salary by 1s. applicable to those who are at present in the service, in view of the discontent that exists at present 643 among the male and female officials under the age of twenty- five.
The increase of 1s. in the minimum salary of certain classes is not applicable to officers already in the service, unless they are at present receiving a salary lower than the new minimum. In that case their pay is at once raised to the new minimum.
