HC Deb 30 May 1906 vol 158 cc428-9

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether he will consider the advisability of increasing the scale of payment to Poor Law medical officers attending Post Office officials in Ireland to a rate approximate to that which is paid in the case of attendance to members of the Royal Irish Constabulary; and also the question of eliminating from the duties consequent upon such attendance a great deal of the clerical work which at present presses on the Poor Law medical profession.


The scale of payment to Post Office medical officers is uniform throughout the United Kingdom and is believed to be sufficient.
