§ 56. Sir W. DAVISON
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what additions have been made to the personnel of those engaged in collecting taxes from the public since the beginning of the year; and what is the total number of additional civil servants employed in all Departments and the total cost involved by such additions?
§ Mr. PETHICK-LAWRENCE
As the answer involves a number of figures, I propose, subject to the consent of the hon. Member, to circulate a reply in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
Following is the answer:
approximately 82 per cent. as compared with an average cost-of-living index figure of 63.4 for the year 1929-30.
