HC Deb 25 February 1918 vol 103 c1075
2. Mr. FIELD

asked the President of the Board of Trade the number of lower-grade Civil servants in receipt of pensions of less than £ 100 per annum who through age, infirmity, or other valid reason are unable to supplement their allowance, with the view of granting them a temporary increase during the period of the War owing to the increased cost of living, which is now 106 per cent. above pre-war rate?

Mr. BALDWIN (Joint Financial Secretary to the Treasury)

I have nothing to add to my previous answers on this subject.
