HC Deb 17 February 1920 vol 125 cc744-5W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the benefits of the Bonus Awards 84 and 101 of the Civil Service Arbitration Board have yet been applied to the staff of the Imperial Institute; if not, the reason for such non-application; and whether the bonus recently awarded is sufficient to meet the high rise in the cost of living?

Lieut.-Colonel AMERY

The claim of the staff of the Imperial Institute to be regarded as civil servants, and so entitled to these bonus awards, has been referred to the Treasury, by whom it is being considered. In the meanwhile, the staff are being paid a bonus of 25 per cent. from the funds of the Institute.
