§ 103. Mr. C. DUNCAN
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that the mail-van drivers in Aberdeen are paid from 23s. to 25s. a week for a minimum 343 week of sixty hours, including stable work; that they work on Sundays without extra pay; that they have to take turns in driving funerals, for which nothing extra is given; and that some of them have to do other work in addition; and whether he will take steps to improve the pay and conditions of these men?
§ Mr. ILLINGWORTH
No representations have been made to me about the wages paid to drivers employed by the contractor for the conveyance of mails by road in Aberdeen. I will have inquiry made as to the observance of the Fair Wages provisions, and will write to the hon. Member.
