§ Mr. G. ROBERTS
asked the Minister of Health if he will furnish a list of the local authorities, including boards of guardians, who have refused to adopt for their officers the Civil Service scale of bonus which came into operation as from 1st March, 1920, and has been recommended by him for adoption by local authorities, including boards of guardians; and what steps he is taking to secure its adoption by all such bodies?
§ Dr. ADDISON
I am afraid that I do not possess the information necessary for the preparation of the suggested list. I have issued circulars to all the local authorities, including boards of guardians, drawing their special attention to the Civil Service scale of War bonus, and sanctioning its adoption in every case where such sanction is required. Further, in cases of dispute I have pressed the local authorities to submit the question to arbitration.
