§ Mr. GOLDSTONE
asked the Postmaster-General if he will state the number of established men in the stores department of the Post Office receiving wages above 30s. and below 40s. per week; the number receiving above 40s. and below 50s.; the number of temporary men receiving below 30s.; and the number of temporary men receiving more than 30s. per week.
§ Mr. HOBHOUSE
The number of established men receiving above 30s. and up to and including 40s. is 129; and above 40s. and up to 50s., thirty-six. No figures are readily available as regards temporary men, but the combined number of unestablished and temporary men receiving wages up to and including 30s. is 710; and receiving above 30s., 389. Mobilised officers are not included in these figures, and overtime and Sunday pay are not taken into account, nor are piece-work rates, which yield from about 20 to 25 per cent. more than the time rates.
