§ 36. Mr. COWAN
asked the First Commissioner of Works whether, in view of the concession of war bonuses or allowances towards the increased cost of living now made to postal employés, he will consider the desirability of making similar allowances to employés in his Department, including the forty-six attendants on the staff of this House and the labourers in 2270 the lighting and ventilating department who are receiving wages amounting to not more than £2 per week?
§ The FIRST COMMISSIONER Of WORKS (Mr. Harcourt)
The question of a war bonus is one which affects the whole public service, and as such is being considered by the Treasury.
