HC Deb 28 March 1917 vol 92 cc408-9
33. Mr. BYRNE

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether he is aware that the cost of living in the city of Dublin has increased 89 per cent. since August, 1914, and that a further advance is expected in the price of bread; and whether instructions will be given that the recent advance in bonus to labourers and others will be extended to all employé's who are on the wages list?


No, Sir. The exclusion of certain classes from this advance is not confined to Ireland or to the War Department.
