HC Deb 10 December 1936 vol 318 c2165
43. Mr. SEXTON

asked the Postmaster-General how many scale payment sub-post offices there are where the emoluments do not exceed £52 per annum?


The number is approximately 6,500. Scale payment sub-offices are usually run in conjunction with a private business, and the Post Office emoluments are not, of course, intended to constitute the sole means of subsistence.


Is the hon. Gentleman aware of the indignant dissatisfaction that there is among sub-postmasters at the ridiculously inadequate remuneration that they receive for such responsible work as they have to undertake?
