Oral Answers to Questions — Education.: Post Office (West African Mails). (18 Dec 1934)

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Wages. (10 Dec 1934)

Mr Ernest Bennett: Is my hon. Friend referring to those on the establishment or to those in auxiliary posts? If she is referring to auxiliary postmen, of course there are a great many—some 12,000—receiving under 35s. a week, but we never pretend that the wages paid to the auxiliary workers are full-time wages, and our policy is to find men for these posts who are already in receipt of money from some other...

Mr Ernest Bennett: Section 23 of the new Betting and Lotteries Act, which exempts small lotteries incidental to certain entertainments, contains a provision that tickets in such lotteries shall not be sold except on the premises on which the entertainment takes place, and no question of the use of the post therefore arises.
