HC Deb 07 March 1917 vol 91 c422W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, in view of the reply of the late Chief Secretary to the hon. Member for North Sligo, on 11th April last, that Treasury sanction had been obtained to a scheme for assimilating the pay of English and Irish prison warders, what action is being taken?


I am told that the rates of the salaries of Irish prison warders have been assimilated to those paid to corresponding grades in England, subject to the conditions of service being also assimilated as far as possible.
