§ Mr. A. Lewis
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, taking June, 1957, as equalling 100, what has been the percentage rise in the wages and salaries of civil servants to date; and, on the basis of an average group of civil servants who were in June, 1957, receiving a salary of £1,750 per annum, what was their latest annual salary.

Clerical Officer … 141 Executive Officer … 135 Higher Executive Officer … 136
In the case of three typical Civil Service salaries which were £1,750 (London) in June, 1957, the current London rates are:

Changes in the pay of Civil Servants are made public as and when they occur.
