§ 1. Mr. JOYNSON-HICKS
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Egyptian Government only gives its civilian officials who are now serving in the Allied Forces one-third pay during the War, though the Indian Government gives half and the Home Government in some cases gives the whole of their pay; and whether he will arrange for the service of the Egyptian officials during the War to count towards pension?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Sir Edward Grey)
The answer is in the affirmative, except that Egyptian Civil servants serving with the Colours are granted full pay for three and a half months from the date on which they cease to perform their civil duties. The suggestion contained in the last part of the question will be submitted to the Egyptian Government.
