HC Deb 21 March 1910 vol 15 cc765-6

asked whether it was proposed to assign the £10 increment to each of the six abstractors in the Statistical Office of his Majesty's Customs who completed five years on their present maximum in September last?


As I informed my hon. Friend on 20th May last these special increments are allowed in a limited number of cases only, as a reward of special merit, and are not given automatically to the senior or time qualified men. Only the cases, therefore, of such of these six men are deserving will be considered in connection with the grant of these special increments.
