HC Deb 04 March 1918 vol 103 c1738W

asked the Minister of Munitions under what conditions and within what limits of salary the bonus of 12½ percent. conceded by the Government to workmen engaged on munitions is received by clerical employés in controlled establishments?


There is no power under the Munitions of War Acts to make an Order granting a bonus to employés remunerated by a weekly salary. Favourable consideration is, however, given to proposals by individual establishments for the payment of a bonus to the lower-paid male clerks of twenty-one years of age and over.
