HC Deb 10 March 1915 vol 70 c1399
59. Mr. W. THORNE

asked the Secretary to the Treasury if he is aware that the Customs watchers who have joined the Colours are not being paid anything by the Government over and above the Army pay; if he is aware that all other Government servants have had their wages or salaries made up to them; and if he intends taking any action in the matter?


Customs watchers are treated in this matter like other Government servants. They receive the balance of civil pay remaining after the deduction of Army pay and separation allowance, if any.
