HC Deb 10 December 1912 vol 45 cc270-1W

asked the Secretary for War if he will have local allowances paid to writers employed in the Army Audit Office, Dublin, similar to those employed at the War Office and Woolwich in a similar capacity; and whether he is aware that the cost of living at Dublin is equal to that of London?


The information at my disposal does not support the view that the cost of living on the prevailing rates of wages are as high in Dublin as in the London area; and I therefore see no reason for paying the allowances suggested.
