§ 100. Mr. BARNES
asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that un established postmen of twenty-one years' service have been worsened, as regards sick pay, by the passing of the National Insurance Act, namely, from two-thirds pay for six months and half-pay thereafter to two-thirds pay for three months only; and can he rearrange conditions so as to restore the unestablished pay to the position it had occupied?
§ The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Herbert Samuel)
The question of the modification of the sick pay privileges of existing long service unestablished officers as the result of the National Insurance Act is under consideration. I will communicate with the hon. Member when a decision has been reached.
