HC Deb 10 December 1906 vol 166 cc1563-4
LORD E. CECIL (Marylebone, E.)

I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his attention has been called to the recent action of the French Chamber in raising the stipends of all its members from £360 a year to £600; and whether he can indicate at what date he is likely to be able to provide the sum of £402,000 a year, which would be required to pay a salary of £600 a year to every Member of the British House of Commons.


The Answer to the first part of the Question is in the affirmative, and to the second part in the negative.
