HC Deb 14 October 1941 vol 374 c1244
49. Mr. Hannah

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he realises the discontent felt by women members of the Civil Service that, without any reference to dependants, men are getting a larger cost-of-living bonus than they are?

Sir K. Wood

The arrangement by which women employed in the Civil Service receive a lower bonus than men is in general accordance with the practice prevailing in other comparable employments, and was recently confirmed by Award 66 of the Civil Service Arbitration Tribunal.
