HC Deb 20 February 1941 vol 369 cc308-9W
Mrs. Adamson

asked the Postmaster-General the wages he proposes to pay the women who will be drafted into the Post Office engineering service; and how these wages will compare with those paid to men similarly employed?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

Women employed in the Post Office Engineering Service will be paid the following rates:

Age. London. Provinces.
s. s.
21 44 40

The women in question will be employed only on the simpler duties and the rates represent 80 per cent. of the men's basic pay plus the amount of Civil Service war bonus appropriate to the resulting figure.
