§ Major Sir EDWARD COATES
asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether all clerks performing Government work will be included and classed as Civil servants and be allowed to participate in the 10s. war bonus?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
No, Sir. The increase of 10s. a week referred to was granted to temporary male clerks of twenty-four years738W of age and over in London headquarters offices who were paid in accordance with the scales laid down by the Treasury for temporary clerks in these offices last September. The increase is not payable to clerks appointed at salaries in excess of those scales or given advances otherwise than in accordance with those scales: nor does it apply to clerks in provincial offices, for which special scales have been settled.
