§ 57. Lieut.-Colonel JAMES
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that as regards recent reductions in the salaries of temporary civil servants a grade 3 clerk, receiving in round figures some £3 a week, has to suffer a reduction of 4s. 5d. a week, whilst clerks in grades 1 and 2, receiving £4 a week, are mulct to the extent of 11d. and 10d. a week, respectively, and principal officers; drawing between £300 and £700 per annum, are unaffected, as no reduction is made in their salaries; and if he can state on what, basis these reductions are assessed?
I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the replies given on the 9th April and the 19th May to the hon. Member for Rotherhithe and the hon. Member for Islington South, respectively. Temporary clerks in Grades 1 and 2 and the salaried officers referred to remain liable for attendance in excess of 42 hours a week without extra payment.
