§ Mr. TYSON WILSON
asked the Postmaster-General what is the number of boys employed to deliver telegraph messages or to do postal work under allowances to postmasters; and what steps, if any, are taken by the Post Office to provide for the future of these boys after they get too old to be employed on boys' wages?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
There is no record of the number of boys employed to deliver telegrams, or to do postal work, under allowances. They are not in the Post Office service, and usually follow some1610W other occupation, their Post Office work being either part-time or of a casual or intermittent nature.
