§ 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.
