HC Deb 08 December 1926 vol 200 cc2108-9
62. Mr. W. HIRST

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that the temporary workers now being employed at the Bradford Post Office are only receiving the minimum rate of 1s. 1d. per hour; in view of the fact that this is a class 1 office, will he favourably consider the payment of the maximum rate of 1s. 2d. per hour to thaw persons; and what are the rates being paid this class of worker at the Leeds Post Office?

Viscount WOLMER

The rates of pay for the Christmas temporary staff are being fixed, within certain maxima, by the local Post Office authorities in consultation with the Employment Ex-change manager. I have no information as to the rates actually fixed for individual offices; but I will make inquiries as regards Bradford and Leeds.
