HC Deb 02 June 1913 vol 53 cc595-6W

asked the Secretary to the Treasury what is the present salary of the First Lord of the Admiralty and what emoluments are attached to that office; and what salary and emoluments have been received during the last four years, respectively, by the First Lord of the Admiralty?


The First Lord is at present in receipt of a salary of £4,500, together with a furnished house. The only variation in the foregoing emoluments during the last four years was that the present First Lord received a house allowance of £500 a year in lieu of the furnished house for the period from the 24th October, 1911, to the 8th April, 1913, inclusive. This was in accordance with precedent.
