HC Deb 13 March 1911 vol 22 cc1869-70
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?


The scale of pay of postmen in force at Newton-le-Willows prior to 1908 was revised in pursuance of the recommendations of the Select Committee on Post Office Servants, and I regret that I am unable to restore the former maximum.
