§ 47. Mr. SUTCLIFFE
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury as regards the amount represented by the restoration of half the cuts in remuneration, the average sum received by each of the civil servants benefiting and the average sum received by each of the teachers similarly benefiting?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Hore-Belisha)
Precise figures are not available but the average benefit in the case of teachers may be estimated at about the rate of £13 a year and in the case of civil servants at about £3 a year. I should explain that these figures are obtained by dividing the estimated cost of half-restoration of the emergency cut in the Autumn, 1931, by the number of persons concerned.
