17. Mr. David Adams
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether it is intended to grant to the higher-paid members of the Trinidad Civil Service war bonuses now in operation with the lower-paid members?
§ Mr. Harold Macmillan
No, Sir. The war bonus is only given to officers with salaries not exceeding $2,500, that is, slightly over £500, a year.
Does not the Minister consider that a very unjust arrangement? Surely the burden of the increased cost of living falls upon that particular grade?
