HC Deb 10 August 1914 vol 65 cc2269-70W

asked the Secretary to the Treasury in how many of the Civil Service Departments the principle of special allowances for London is recognised at the present time, the dates on which such allowances were first introduced, and the reason in each case for this discrimination between London and provincial cities and towns?


So far as I have been able to ascertain London allowances have been granted to certain officers serving under the Admiralty, War Office, Post: Office, and Home Office. The information: necessary to enable me to answer the rest of the hon. Member's question is not readily available.
