HC Deb 07 June 1917 vol 94 cc342-3
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 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?


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.
