HC Deb 11 November 1920 vol 134 cc1392-3W

asked the Prime Minister if he is aware of the hardship imposed upon many Members of Parliament by the high cost of living and train fares; whether he is aware that many Members are not wealthy; and if he will consider the sum of £400 a year, less Income Tax, which is paid to Members when Ministers' salaries are being considered?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given yesterday by the Leader of the House to the right hon. Gentleman the Member for West Fife (Mr. Adamson).
