§ 33. Sir H. Williams
asked the Home Secretary whether the appointment of Councillor Manning, a member of the Camberwell Borough Council, to the post of controller of air-raid precautions in the borough of Camberwell at a salary of £ 750, tax free, has been approved by his Department; and whether a grant will be made in respect of the salary of this appointment?
§ Sir J. Anderson
Appointments to the office of controller are notified to my Department but are not subject to my approval. No salaries have been authorised for these appointments, and I have informed the Camberwell Borough Council that the salary which they are paying to the controller will not rank for Government grant.
§ Sir H. Williams
Then I understand the ratepayers of Camberwell have to pay for the privilege of having as one of their councillors a paid official of A.R.P.?
