HC Deb 14 August 1916 vol 85 cc1432-3W

asked the Prime Minister whether he will state the name, salary, and emoluments of the King's High Planner; whether his services have been applied for in connection with the rebuilding of the ruined area in Dublin, and by whom; if he is to cross to Dublin to advise; and by whose authority?


The Prime Minister has requested me to reply to this question. I have been asked whether the services of Mr. Raymond Unwin, the Chief Town Planning Inspector of my Department, could be lent for the purpose of advising the Dublin Corporation in connection with the rebuilding of parts of the city, and I stated that I would gladly comply with a request of this nature. Mr. Unwin's salary is £900 per annum, and he is repaid the actual cost of locomotion. He also receives £1 a night when absent from home on duty. If Mr. Unwin is to advise he will, of course, have to go to Dublin, and he will do so by my authority and at the request of the Dublin Corporation.
