§ Sir H. NIELD
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that the effect of the application of the Civil Service scales of bonuses to the higher salaried officials of quasi-public authorities, some of whom are dependent upon a rate to make up a deficiency of income, has been to add to a salary of £1,000 the sum of £648 19s. 2d., to a salary of £1,100 a bonus of £702 2s. 6d., and to a salary of £1,200 the sum of £750; and whether he will take into consideration the additional burdens which are imposed on the public by the addition of a pro rata bonus to these larger salaries before adopting any further scale which may be issued?
§ Dr. ADDISON
I have been asked to reply to this question. My hon. and learned Friend's suggestion shall be considered in the event of proposals being made for further action of the kind mentioned.
