HC Deb 26 April 1923 vol 163 cc691-2W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his attention has been called to the decision of the House of Lords in the case of Sutton v. Attorney-General, dealing with the inclusion of war bonuses as part of full civil pay to be granted in addition to military pay while on active service, and affecting, in this case, certain grades of Post Office servants; what will be the cost of giving effect to this decision in the Post Office; whether it will govern the case of other Government Departments, as the judgment appears to indicate; and, if so, what is the approximate number of civil servants likely to be affected?


I answered this question on Monday, the 23rd April.
