§ 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.
