HC Deb 06 July 1949 vol 466 cc2141-2
62. Mr. Hugh Fraser

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that sub-postmasters, especially in small sub-offices, receive an inadequate remuneration; and what action he proposes to take.

Mr. Wilfred Paling

The remuneration of sub-postmasters was revised last year in agreement with the National Federation of Sub-Postmasters, and I am not aware that it is inadequate. The average minimum payments are now more than two and a half times the pre-war rates.
