§ Viscount WOLMER
asked the right hon. Gentleman whether, in view of the general rise in the cost of living during recent years, he will restore to the postmen of Newton-le-Willows the maximum in the scale of their wages that existed prior to 1908?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
The scale of pay of postmen in force at Newton-le-Willows prior to 1908 was revised in pursuance of the recommendations of the 1870 Select Committee on Post Office Servants, and I regret that I am unable to restore the former maximum.
