§ Sir HILDRED CARLILE
asked the Postmaster-General whether provisional payment, at the rate of one unit for every £1 worth of insurance stamps sold, has been promised to the sub-postmasters, which approximates to less than one halfpenny in the pound at the average sub-post office; and whether this rate has been decided upon without an interview with the representatives of the sub-postmasters, although such an interview would appear to have been promised by him on 7th July, 1911?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
I beg to refer the hon. Member to an answer given yesterday to a question on this subject by the senior hon. Member for Blackburn. I have seen the deputation referred to in that answer and am considering the representations made.
