26. Captain CLAY
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the number of new officials who have been appointed in the Treasury Department since 1st January, 1913; if he can state the amount of their salaries; and how many offices or private houses have been hired for their accommodation?
§ Mr. LLOYD GEORGE
I presume the hon. and gallant Member wishes to know the number of officials added to the Department, omitting appointments to fill vacancies. On this assumption the figures are: One first-class clerk at a salary rising from £700 to £900 a year; one second-class clerk at a salary rising from £300 to £500 a year; one female typist at a salary rising from 20s. to 26s. a week; and one charwoman receiving 12s. a week. It has not been found necessary to hire or construct any additional buildings for their accommodation.
