HC Deb 19 April 1910 vol 16 cc1865-6
Colonel RAWSON

asked the Postmaster-General if he can see his way to provide safes in small sub-post offices, where requested by the sub-postmaster, in view of the fact that stamps, postal orders, and change, often to the value of over £100 have to be kept, and that the small remuneration paid to the sub-postmaster makes it impossible for him to be able to provide a safe for himself?

Captain NORTON

The scale of remuneration for sub-postmasters is based on the recommendation of the Select Parliamentary Committee, who stated that "it is intended to cover the provision of all office fittings except post boxes." I am not prepared to depart from the Committee's recommendation.
