§ 55. Mr. BAKER
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether any established posts have recently been filled in the Department of the National War Savings Committee; whether he will state the numbers of such appointments, men and women, and the salaries attached thereto, and the method by which the appointments were made, whether by promotion, transfer of established officers, or through the reconstruction competitions instituted for ex-temporary officers; whether any unestablished posts have recently been filled in the Department of the National War Savings Committee; the numbers of such appointments, men and women, and the salaries attached thereto; and, in this 1128 case, whether it is intended that these posts should be made established and, if so, when?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. William Graham)
Since the 1st January last two established posts for higher executive officers under the National Savings Committee have been filled at commencing salaries of £400 per annum, plus bonus, by the promotion in normal course of two established executive officers (men) serving in the Department. As regards unestablished posts, the Committee have filled during the same period three posts for assistant, commissioners (men) at commencing salaries of £350 per annum, inclusive, and five posts for shorthand and typist assistants (women) at inclusive rates ranging from 15s. to 43s. 7d. per week. There is no present intention of making these temporary posts established.
