HC Deb 11 May 1910 vol 17 c814W

asked the Postmaster-General why the remuneration of the Post Office employés in Liverpool is higher than the remuneration paid to the employés in Birkenhead, although the cost of living in Birkenhead is shown in the Board of Trade Returns to be higher than in Liverpool?


The reason is that the units of work at Liverpool number 7,126, while at Birkenhead the number is 559. The scales of pay have been fixed in accordance with the recommendations of the Select Committee on Post Office servants in paragraphs 258 to 261 of their Report.
