HC Deb 08 December 1920 vol 135 c2158W

asked the Postmaster-General whether an agreement was made under the Whitley Council to pay increased salaries to temporary Post Office sorters; whether he is aware that at present in the Belfast Post Office the temporary men are paid wages ranging from £2 19s. to £3 5s. per week, which rates are totally inadequate to meet the present cost of living, especially for married men; and whether, as these men have now been waiting almost a year for this increase, he will take immediate steps to have the increased rates, with the accumulated arrears, recommended by the Whitley Council paid to those men before Christmas?


Instructions have been given for the payments due to temporary Post Office employés under the agreement referred to by the hon. Member to be made as soon as possible.
