HC Deb 13 May 1915 vol 71 cc1838-9W

asked the Postmaster-General if he is now in a position to state the exact increases in the rates of pay of mail drivers of all classes which he has arranged with the contractors to be paid as from the 1st of March?


I understand that the regular horse drivers have received an increase of 3s. a week. In the case of the odd drivers an increase of wages was not regarded as necessary in order to comply with the terms of the Fair-Wages Clause, but I understand some of them are receiving increases of 1s. to 3s. a week. The regular motor drivers have received an increase of 2s. a week.
