HC Deb 22 December 1916 vol 88 c1851W

asked the Postmaster-General whether he can state the reason why head postmasters have not yet received remuneration for the sale of national health and unemployment stamps; whether he is aware that dissatisfaction prevails amongst head postmasters owing to their treatment by the Department in this matter; and whether he will take steps to see that these payments are made forthwith?


I regret that there has been difficulty in arriving at a basis for calculating the remuneration, and this has been accentuated by the present shortage of staff, which has retarded the collection of the necessary statistics. The matter has been the subject of correspondence with the Association of Head Postmasters, and I hope that a decision may be reached before long.
