§ Mr. E. BROWN
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury the number of ex-temporary technical officers employed as surveyors, architects, and draughts-men who have been established since 1920, showing the number who have been given a starting salary, inclusive of cost-of-living bonus, equivalent to the late temporary scale of pay; and the number who have been given a starting salary, inclusive of cost-of-living bonus, which was an immediate increase over their old temporary rates of pay?
§ Mr. RONALD McNEILL
Approximately 500 persons have been appointed to established posts as surveyors, architects, and draughtsmen since 1920. Detailed particulars as to their previous employment and as to their starting pay on establishment could not be made available without special inquiry, which would not, I think, be justified.
