HC Deb 27 October 1919 vol 120 c307W

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?


My right hon. Friend is aware of the facts stated. The whole matter is under consideration.
