To ask the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that Mr. Baker, of Princes Risborough, is only paid 4d. an hour as an auxiliary postman, although the regulations state that 4½d. per hour is the proper rate for auxiliaries in places where established men rise to a maximum of £1 a week as at Princes Risborough; whether he is aware that an application for proper payment has been rejected; and whether he will take steps to see that Mr. Baker receives the pay due to him. (Answered by Mr. Sydney Buxton.) The regulations admit of payment at the rate of 4d. per hour for rural auxiliary duties at offices where established men rise to a maximum of £1 a week. I will inquire whether the circumstances justify any increase in Mr. Baker's wage.
