Lieut.-Colonel J. WARD
asked the Postmaster-General whether the question of considering the units for valuing the salaries of head postmasters has been under consideration since 1913; whether he has yet decided if this class of officer is to be paid anything for their work in connection with the issue of War Savings Certificates, National Savings stamps; Income Tax stamps, Entertainment Tax stamps, Army and Navy separation and pension allowances, and the Unemployment stamps; and from what date any credit is to be given?
§ Mr. PEASE
The revision of the unit scale, which was suspended during the War, was carried out last year, except as regards the items mentioned; and I hope that credit for these items will be settled soon. The question of the date of applying the credit is under discussion, with the Association of Head Postmasters.
