§ Mr. J. DAVISON
asked the Minister of Pensions whether the scale of expenses allowed to a member of a local war pensions committee is 1s. per hour for time lost through attending meetings of the committee; whether in comparison with present earnings and the high cost of living Is. per hour does not meet the loss incurred; whether members of local advisory committees under the Ministry of Labour are entitled to the actual wages lost up to a maximum of 20s. per day; and whether he will consider the advisability of adopting the same scale for members of war pensions committees?
§ Sir J. CRAIG
My right hon. Friend is aware of the facts stated. The whole matter is under consideration.
