HC Deb 11 March 1926 vol 192 c2588

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he will ascertain the number of persons in the Government service who are earning less than £2 a week; and whether he will specify in his reply if the salary paid is inclusive of bonus or not?


As indicated in the. reply given to the hon. Member for Rochdale (Mr. Kelly) on the 21st December last, the material for answer to this question is not available, and could not be obtained without elaborate detailed investigation, the expense of which would not, I think, be justified.
