HC Deb 08 July 1919 vol 117 c1589

asked the Prime Minister whether attention will be given to the question of the salaries of County Court judges, reduced by taxation and the higher cost of living to less than one-half their pre-war value, and that regard will be had to the increasing duties thrown upon them by legislation and the extreme importance of retaining and obtaining men of recognised ability and character for such positions?

Mr. BALDWIN (Joint Financial Secretary to the Treasury)

The Government is alive to the considerations urged by my hon. Friend, and they have extended to County Court judges the war bonus of £300 a year awarded by the Conciliation and Arbitration Board to Civil servants with salaries of like amount.
