HC Deb 04 December 1906 vol 166 c737
MR. IDRIS (Flint Boroughs)

To ask the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that a telegraphist at Llandudno, aged twenty-two years, who is compelled to perform counter duties dealing with money order and savings bank business, is in receipt of 18s. per week; whether he will take into consideration that this officer remained unappointed four years, and that he rendered useful service during this period, and consider the same with a view to granting an increase in his salary.

(Answered by Mr. Sydney Buxton.) The sorting clerk and the telegraphist to whom the Question refers is on a scale of pay rising to 44s. a week. He will, in the ordinary course, receive an increase of salary next month. His duties are the ordinary duties of his class.
