§ Mr. HALL-CAINE
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether arrangements are being made to restore the recent bonus cut of Admiralty industrial civil servants and to consolidate this bonus with their basic pay in respect of the forthcoming financial year; and, if not, whether he will consider making this 941W change in order that the pay of industrial civil servants shall be consolidated at the same time as that of the remainder?
Sir B. EYRES MONSELL
The replies to both parts of the question are in the negative. The wages of Admiralty industrial employes are regulated on fair wages principles. I am aware of no reason for increasing the emoluments of Admiralty employes above those current in the corresponding outside industries.
