§ Mr. CHARLES DUNCAN
asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether he has received any communication from the Civil Service Federation respecting the recent war bonus award to the lower-paid grades in the Civil Service; and whether it is intended to receive a deputation on the subject.
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
I have received the communication referred to. The Government's decision with regard to the war bonus to the Civil Service was leached after the fullest consideration of all the circumstances, and no useful purpose would be served by my receiving a deputation on the subject.
