§ 63. Sir FRANK SANDERSON
asked the Postmaster-General if he will state the rates of pay and hours of working of telephone operators at the present time and also in October, 1924?
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
The present pay, including bonus, for full-time female telephonists in London ranges from 30s. 8d. a week at 16 years of age to a maximum of 66s. 2d. a week; the corresponding range in October, 1924, was from 31s. 6d. to 62s. 8d. The rates payable in the provinces are lower and vary according to the town in which the staff are employed. The hours of attendance for full-time telephonists are 48 a week and are the same as they were in October, 1924.
