37. MARQUESS of TULLIBARDINE
asked the Postmaster-General whether he can see his way to having the post office at Londonderry placed in a higher class, in view of the fact that since it was reduced in 1908 the value of units of work has steadily increased?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
The number of units of work at Londonderry is still far short of the number that would warrant the introduction of higher scales of pay at that office. It is not the case that the Londonderry office was reduced to a lower class in 1908. The maximum pay of the male sorting clerks and telegraphists remained unchanged, but that of the female sorting clerks and telegraphists and that of the postmen was raised 1s. a week in that year.
