§ MR. ELLIS DAVIES (Carnarvonshire, Eifion)
I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that John Morgan Jones, an auxiliary postman at Waenfawr, in the county of Carnarvon, 307 is employed for four hours in the morning and one hour in the afternoon at a wage of only 11s. a week, while another auxiliary postman is paid at a higher rate at the same office for similar work, because the Department failed to obtain his services for less; and whether, in view of the fact that Jones cannot, on account of the arrangement of the hours of service, engage in another occupation, he can increase his pay and so make it a living wage.
THE POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. SYDNEY BUXTON (Tower Hamlets, Poplar)
I have called for a Report on this subject, and will communicate the result to the hon. Member in due course.
