HC Deb 14 March 1917 vol 91 c1129W

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he has received a petition from Scottish prison officers asking for a war bonus, in view of the increased cost of living; and, if so, whether he can announce that he is prepared to grant the concession asked for in the petition?


A petition for an increased war bonus was received a short time ago and is receiving my consideration in consultation with the Prison Commissioners.
