HC Deb 07 July 1910 vol 18 c1790

asked the Secretary for War whether he is aware that the present rates of pay granted to writers in the Army Ordnance Department at out-stations are much less than those granted to similar grades in other branches of His Majesty's Service, namely, the Army Pay Department, Naval Ordnance Department, and the Army Ordnance Department at Woolwich Arsenal; and whether, seeing that these clerks perform duties not inferior to those of the other writers mentioned, he will revise the rates of pay of out-station writers and advance them to the same level as those of the clerks quoted above?


The question of the rates of pay of these writers was only recently settled after a full inquiry into all the circumstances, and I am not prepared to make any increase.
