offices. The answers exclude employees in semi-staff and revenue post offices, who are paid out of postal revenue.

The word "administrative" is interpreted as applicable to headquarters and the district offices, but excluding the railway mail clerks. Although there are classes in the larger post offices which might be regarded as administrative, it is difficult to draw a clear line and therefore all employees in staff post offices are treated in these answers as operational.

2. (a) 25; (b) 1, postal superintendent; 2, technical officers 5; 8, technical officers 4; 14, technical officers 3.

3 and 6. "Operating staff" is interpreted to refer to all employees in staff post offices plus the railway mail clerks.

(a) Fulltime 20,630 23,392(b) Part time 2,440 2,825(c) Casual, see note following part 7.

5. In the post office department "nonoperational" is considered synonymous with "administrative" and is covered in the answer to parts 1 and 4. The number of part timers and casuals in this group is negligible.

7. Regular part timers as at March 31, 1964:

Classification Number

Letter carrier 175

Postal chauffeur 8

Postal helper 547

Postal clerk 2 1,729

Postal clerk 1 72

Mail handler 292

Typist 1 1

Telephone operator 1

Where two rates are shown, those who work during day hours receive the lower rate whereas night work calls for the higher rate.

Casuals: We have no breakdown by wages of the number of casual employees in the operating service since they are paid locally. The control by headquarters is primarily

Wage Rates $1.75 per hour 1.75 per hour

1.43 per hour

1.57 and $1.72 per hour

1.43 and 1.58 per hour 1.40 and 1.55 per hour

annual rate annual rate

through the dollar cost of casuals rather than the number. The number fluctuates daily. In the 17 largest post offices there was a total of 508 casuals in 1959 and 988 on March 31, 1964. In addition there was a small number of casuals in the smaller post offices but no record of these is maintained at headquarters.

Questions

8. Volume of mail by classes (pieces): (a) First class, 1,983,942,753; (b) Second class, 546,748,782; (c) Third class, 1,182,512,698;

(d) Fourth class, 89,158,912.

The above figures for staff show the actual number of employees in contrast to the hon. member's question on related subjects last November which dealt with the number of positions. Usually the number of positions is somewhat greater than the number of employees due to delays in replacements; the difference varies from time to time.
