§ 34. Mr W. THORNE
asked whether the recent advance given to the various sections of postment by the Hobhouse award will be given to the non-pensioner watchers in His Majesty's Customs?
§ Mr. MONTAGU
I assume that my hon. Friend refers to the award by Sir James Woodhouse. Before further considering the extension of "war bonus" to the Civil Service in general, my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer has decided to consult the Committee the formation of which was announced by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister on the 14th instant.
