HC Deb 16 August 1916 vol 85 cc1865-6
82. Mr. CROOKS

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether, seeing that the Treasury have just recently sanctioned an increase of pay both to the temporary men and women employed in Government Departments, he can now see his way to give an increase of pay to men of the abstractor class who are feeling the burden of the increased cost of living?

Mr. REA (Lord of the Treasury)

My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply. This question is at present under consideration.
