asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, seeing that on the death of Government officials their pay ceases automatically within 24 hours of their death, he can make provision for the 24 hours to be extended to a month, 1632W considering that any servants employed by them have to receive a full month's pay?
§ Mr. LLOYD-GEORGE
The answer is in the negative. I may, however, remind the hon. and Gallant Member that by the Superannuation Bill of this Session provision is made for the payment of gratuities, in certain cases, to the legal representatives of Civil servants who die whilst still employed in the service.
