§ MR. PICKERSGILL
I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether he has now considered the recommendations of the Select Committee, so far as they affect the class of senior postmen and lobby officers, which he stated on the 27th May last were engaging his attention and in respect of which he promised an early decision; and can he say when payment will be made of the arrears due in consequence of any increase in the scale of pay, which is to take effect from January last.
§ THE POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. SYDNEY BUXTON,) Tower Hamlets, Poplar
The scheme of the Parliamentary Committee affecting the class of senior postmen and lobby officers is in course of being completed. The pay of the officers concerned will where necessary be adjusted as from the 1st of January last.
