§ 46. Mr. MALLALIEU
asked the Postmaster-General what is the money value of the payment per hour for the receiving and sorting of mails and the early morning attendance of country sub-postmasters; and what is their payment per bag for the receiving and despatching of mails?
§ Sir K. WOOD
The mail work is intermittent and does not lend itself to hourly rates of pay. It is covered by unit credits which vary according to the volume and character of the work, and are incorporated in the general unit scale on which the remuneration of sub-postmasters is based. The scale of remuneration for mail work is at present under discussion with the National Federation of Sub-Postmasters.
