§ Sir W. Womersley
There are 60 scale payment sub-offices throughout the Shetland Isles under the control of the head postmaster of Lerwick. These sub-offices are conducted by sub-postmasters and sub-postmistresses, whose duties are those normally performed at sub-post offices and2104W whose hours of attendance normally extend over the period 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. The scale payment attaching to the majority of the sub-offices would be the minimum for the particular class of office, varying from £30 to £52 a year, plus payment for telephone call office work where performed. The amount of post office business transacted daily is, of course, generally very small and calls for occasional attention only.
