HC Deb 20 April 1948 vol 449 cc1624-5
42. Mr. Gammans

asked the Prime Minister if he will make a statement as to the future salaries and emoluments of the chairmen and members of the boards of nationalised industries, in view of the uncertainty which at present exists on this subject.

The Prime Minister (Mr. Attlee)

No alteration in the salaries of chairmen and members of the boards of socialised industries is at present contemplated.

Mr. Gammans

Do I understand that the threat made by the Secretary of State for War is just another irresponsible statement?

The Prime Minister

I understand from a report I have seen that the Secretary of State for War expressly said it was not a threat.

Lieut.-Colonel Lipton

Is my right hon. Friend aware that a great many people do think that these payments are rather too generous?

Colonel Gomme-Duncan

Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether any alteration in the emoluments of the Lord High Commissioner for the Church of Scotland' is in view?
