HC Deb 09 October 1939 vol 352 c35
62. Mr. Viant

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury on what grounds the billeting allowance to Civil Servants is assumed to cover food and lodging, but is only assumed to cover lodgings in the case of school teachers?

Captain Crookshank

The position of the civil servant and that of the school teacher are not comparable, but the matter is being investigated.

Mr. Ede

When will the investigation be completed, and when will an announcement be made?

Captain Crookshank

I could not say.
