HC Deb 19 December 1935 vol 307 c1933

asked the Prime Minister whether he proposes to introduce legislation to put Ministerial salaries on a more equitable basis?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Baldwin)

I have had this matter in mind for some time, but I am not in a position to make any statement.


I would like to ask the Prime Minister whether he will recast the whole of this idea of salaries for Cabinet Ministers because of the difference between a Member of Parliament and a Cabinet Minister, the result of which is the amount of intriguing and petty jealousies that go on.
