HC Deb 06 April 1909 vol 3 cc906-7

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that in the Post Office Circular of 23rd March there appeared an advertisement for a full-time male assistant for Erith sorting office, competent to perform full postal, counter, and telegraph duties, at a scale of pay ranging from 3d. to 6d. an hour and, if so, whether he will consider the advisability of recommending a more adequate remuneration for such responsible positions.

The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Sydney Buxton)

The rates of pay offered in the advertisement in question for officers over 19 years of age are those recommended by the Parliamentary Committee. The rates under 19 years of age are granted according to age and qualification, as is usual in such cases.
