§ 60. Mr. R. MORRISON
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the total amount paid in salaries to members of His Majesty's Government in 1924, and the amount to be paid in the present year?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Ronald McNeill)
The amount paid in salaries to members of His Majesty's Government in the financial year 1924 was £137,560, and the amount estimated to be paid in 1926 is £144,400.
§ Mr. McNEILL
It is partly because the late Prime Minister, following the example of Lord Salisbury, occupied two offices and accepted only one salary, and also because there have been two Under-Secretaries appointed since then, one of which is occasioned by the reorganisation of the Colonial Office.
