HC Deb 30 January 1913 vol 47 cc1505-6

asked in what State Departments officials are required to give their business time exclusively to official work; in what Departments extra payments are made to officials in addition to salary; how the extra pay is earned, whether by work within or without normal business hours; in what Departments outside or private practice is allowed in addition to official salary; and in what Departments extra Departmental pay and private practice for reward are allowed concurrently with official salary?


Speaking generally, all permanent pensionable officers in Government Departments are required to give their whole time to their official duties. Particulars of extra remuneration paid to officials in addition to salary are given under the several Votes in the annual Appropriation Accounts. A number of Departments employ part-time officers with the right of private practice, but I am unable to furnish a complete list.


Can the right hon. Gentleman say under what rule the Law Officers of the Crown come in that respect?


I would like to have notice of that question.
