§ 79. Mr. AMMON
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether the re-assessment of the balance of civil pay of officers in his Department, now being made, is on the basis of the bonuses they would have received if they had remained in their civil occupation; and whether all officers who joined on the promise of the balance of civil pay will be so re-assessed?
Mr. LOCKER - LAMPSON
The reassessment of the balance of civil pay now being made in the Office of Works is in respect of single men who enlisted from that. Department under an offer of balance of civil pay but who have not hitherto been credited with war bonus: in all such cases the balance will be recalculated with the inclusion of war bonus, as it has already been included in the balance paid to married men.
