HC Deb 20 December 1916 vol 88 cc1481-2W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether, in view of the fact that the prison warders in England have been granted their war bonuses without stoppage of special allowances, he will take steps to secure that the Irish warders who are getting an increase of pay or war bonus under the new scheme will not be deprived of the allowances they are at present receiving?


Irish prison warders have been granted this year both a war bonus and increased rates of pay. There are no stoppages from the war bonus, and in cases where allowances have been withdrawn under the new scales of pay, the fact was taken into consideration in fixing the new rates.
