§ 28. Mr. Lewis
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will publish in HANSARD a list of the persons employed in his Department who have to meet the cost of their postage, secretarial expenses, telephone charges, living away from home, and all other expenses wholly and necessarily incurred in carrying out their duties on behalf of his Department from their State salary.
§ Mr. Thorneycroft
So far as I am aware, I am the only person in the Department who has secretarial expenses and telephone charges and has not the advantage extended to Members of Parliament of being able to charge them against my Income Tax.
