§ 2. Mr. B. SMITH
asked the Minister of Pensions whether, seeing that the salary and bonus payable to pensionable officers appointed as chief or deputy chief area officers is considerably in excess of the amount payable to non-pensionable officers occupying similar posts in other areas, he will consider the desirability of raising the salaries of the latter officers who are performing similar duties in areas of equal importance elsewhere?
§ Major TRYON
The question of the salaries of permanent unestablished officials and temporary officials throughout the Ministry is already under discussion with representatives of the staff concerned, and I am not, at the present moment, in a position to make any statement on the subject.
