HC Deb 25 February 1920 vol 125 cc1723-4W
Brigadier-General SURTEES

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether heads of departments in British East Africa and other Colonies, who are paid as such, are in some cases called upon to perform numerous other duties involving a considerable amount of work and responsibility for which they receive no remuneration?

Lieut.-Colonel AMERY

I am not aware what cases the hon. and gallant Member has in mind, but officers of the public service in East Africa, like their colleagues in other services, are, I believe, ready to assist the Government in any way they can without making demands for extra pay. Additional remuneration is given in certain eases where special circumstances warrant it.
