§ 35. Mr. R. McNEILL
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether on the 14th January, 1915, Army Council Instructions were issued increasing the pay of civilian clerks in Record Offices from 30s. to 33s. for a six-day week of ten hours per day, subject to certain qualifications; whether he is aware that no additional pay in accordance with the Instructions was given to the civilian clerks in the Royal Garrison Artillery Record Office in Dover until April, 1916, and that, although an application has been made for fifteen months' arrears due under the Instructions mentioned, no payment of these arrears has yet been made; if he will say why the Instructions were not complied with in the case mentioned for fifteen months; and if he will give directions for the arrears due to be paid without further delay?
