HC Deb 22 June 1921 vol 143 c1378W

asked the Minister of Health how many officials in his Department at present receive a salary of £1,000, including War bonus, or over; and how many received a salary of £1,000 or over in June, 1914?


The number of officers of the Ministry in receipt of a substantive salary of £1,000 a year or upwards is 83. In the original Departments out of which the Ministry of Health was created the number was 29. In addition to these numbers, there are 215 officers receiving a substantive salary ranging between £570 and £1,000 a year, who, with the addition of the present War bonus, are drawing upwards of £1,000 a year. The reduction of the War bonus contemplated to take effect on the 1st September next will reduce this latter figure by some 150, and the total figure will be still further decreased by reductions in staff which I am now making.
