asked the Postmaster-General what steps he will take to ensure that village sub-postmasters in the lower income bracket receive an adequate return for their work and so permit the continuance of this valuable service to rural communities.

The remuneration of sub-postmasters is based on the amount of Post Office business they transact, but certain minimum payments apply however little the work involved. I am currently reviewing sub-postmasters' remuneration in conjunction with the National Federation of Sub-Postmasters.
