§ Mr. G. ROBERTS
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty if he has under consideration the extension to temporary accountant clerks of the bonus, based on the cost of living, granted to the permanent staff and subsequently extended to clerks, typists, etc.; and, if so, whether he is now in a position to announce a decision?
§ Sir J. CRAIG
Temporary accountant clerks, entered before the War, receive war bonus like other civil servants. Those entered during the War, on inclusive rates of pay, do not receive the bonus. The matter is, however, receiving consideration.
