HC Deb 08 May 1913 vol 52 cc2231-2W

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that dissatisfaction exists amongst sub-postmasters and postmistresses in Ireland owing to the small remuneration which they receive for work done under the National Insurance Act; and when he proposes to increase the allowance which they now receive?

Captain NORTON

The present arrangement is provisional only. As was recently announced in this House, the whole matter is under consideration, and it is hoped that it will shortly be possible to arrive at a settlement.
