§ 57. Mr. BRIANT
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what class railway travelling is allowed to civil servants whilst on official duties?
The class of railway travel allowed to civil servants whilst on official duty depends on salary, and 615 status. As a general rule first-class travelling is allowed (a) to officers on scales of salary rising to not less than £500 (exclusive of bonus); (b) to officers whose actual salary exceeds £400 or in some cases £350 (exclusive of bonus); (c) to temporary officers whose actual salary exceeds £450 (inclusive).
§ Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY
Why is it that the poorly paid officers are only allowed third-class fares, while the rich officials are allowed first-class fares?
