§ 64. Mr. FIELD
asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether he can state the amounts that have been approved for issue as war bonus to established Civil servants; and whether he will state if it would be possible to set up a standard scale for each class in the various Departments, as at the present time grievances are being suffered by employeé s owing to the complex details introduced by particular Departments?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
The present scale of war bonus payable to established Civil servants was determined by Awards Nos.17 and 18 of the Conciliation and Arbitration Board for Government Employeé s in December last (of which I will send the hon. Member copies). The terms of these awards were extended by the Treasury to all permanent classes of employeés, and I am not aware of any variation in the action of Departments in carrying them out.
