HC Deb 09 April 1913 vol 51 c1175
91. Mr. FELL

asked the Postmaster-General if he has made better arrangements with the Insurance Commissioners or the Treasury to secure more adequate remuneration for the employés of the Post Office who have had such onerous work thrown on them by the National Insurance Act?

The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Herbert Samuel)

As regards scale payment Sub-Postmasters I beg to refer the hon. Member to the replies given to questions on the subject on 24th and 27th March; and as regards other officers, to the reply given to a question on 6th January.


Are there not numerous cases where they are receiving absolutely nominal pay for really very serious and onerous work?


The pay that is so far being given is only payment on account, and the ultimate amount to be received has not yet been settled.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there is a good deal of dissatisfaction over this matter and cannot he get money out of the Treasury?
