§ Captain Waterhouse
Temporary postmen have recently been granted a war bonus, which in Liverpool has increased their pay to 58s. a week or 1s. 2½d. an hour. The rate for established postmen quoted by my hon. Friend, which is also subject to a war bonus addition of 5s. a week, is the maximum point of an incremental scale of pay, and is not payable until at least six years' service has been given. I see no reason for making any further adjustment.
