§ Mr. FETHERSTONHAUGH
asked the Postmaster-General whether any scale of payments to Post Office officials for their duties under the National Insurance Act of 1911 has been arranged, and, in particular, what annual amount is it proposed to pay for such duties to the postmasters of Irvinestown, Kesh, and Bellek, county Fermanagh, and Crossmolina and Belmullet, county Mayo, respectively?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
In the case of offices staffed by persons in the direct employment of the Post Office additional work in connection with National Insurance business is met where necessary by the employment of additional staff. As regards scale payment sub-offices, I beg to refer the hon. Member to the reply given to a similar question by the hon. Member for North Derry on the 25th November last. It has not yet been possible to fix a rate of payment for the work of stocking and selling insurance stamps.
