§ 28. Colonel Lord H. CAVENDISH-BENTINCK
asked the Under-Secretary for War why the temporary women clerks in the War Office are paid 25s. for a week of 48 hours whereas in all other Government offices they receive 25s. for a week of 42 hours; whether the temporary male clerk in the War Office receives a minimum of 31s. 6d. for a week of 42 hours;: and whether the temporary male clerk receives overtime pay after working 42 hours a week and the temporary women clerks do not receive overtime pay till they have worked 48 hours?
§ Mr. TENNANT
I am not aware of the pay issued in other Government offices to women clerks, but I would point out to the Noble Lord that women clerks in the War Office, after passing a satisfactory probation, receive 30s. a week. The answer to the last two parts of the question, is in the affirmative.
