§ 71. Lord ROBERT CECIL
asked the Postmaster-General whether, where a man is employed by the Post Office for part of his time only at a wage of less than 7s. a week and fills up his time with other employment, bringing his weekly wage over that amount, the Post Office decline to stamp his insurance card; and, if so, for what reason?
§ The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Herbert Samuel)
In the absence of fuller particulars I am unable to reply definitely to the Noble Lord's question. Probably the person to whom he refers is a deliverer of letters paid by means of an allowance to the postmaster and employed for not more than eighteen hours a week. Such employment has been specified by the Insurance Commissioners as a "subsidiary employment." within the meaning of Section 1 of Part II. of the First Schedule to the Act; and a person so employed is not liable to compulsory insurance in respect of such employment.
