§ Mr. H. Brooke
There was a general increase in most Civil Service salaries as from 1st July, 1954. Since that date, increases have been given to all grades up to the level of Under-Secretary. The number of officers above that level who have not received such increases is about 180, excluding the Foreign Service. The increases given to the rest of the Service have varied considerably in percentage terms from grade to grade: the overall average is of the order of 10 per cent.
