§ Mr. GILBERT
asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether temporary male employés in Government Departments, doing the same work as established Civil servants, are receiving higher salaries than the permanent officials of the same age; and, if so, on what grounds do the Government justify this?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
The scales of pay of permanent and temporary employés are not necessarily identical, as they naturally depend on the terms of the appointment in each case. If the hon. Member will furnish particulars of the cases to which he refers, I shall be happy to inquire into them.
