§ MR. PICKERSGILL (Bethnal Green, S.W.)
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether it is contemplated to raise the salaries of the Chief Secretary of Excise, the Controller of Stamps and Stores, and the Chief Inspector of Stamps and Taxes by the sum of £200 per annum a-piece, although each of these 666 officers is already in receipt of a salary of £1,000 or upwards; and, whether he will give an assurance that, before these salaries are increased, he will lay upon the Table of the House Papers containing the reasons of the Commissioners of Inland Revenue for recommending such increase?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. HENRY H. FOWLER) (Wolverhampton, E.)
The increase of salaries referred to by the hon. Member is not contemplated.
