HC Deb 21 February 1924 vol 169 c2008W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he is aware that the salaries of the clerical staffs in the northern region are being reduced while at the same time the salaries of the medical staffs in the same area are being increased; and will he explain why this is being done?


I think my hon. Friend must have been misinformed. The rates of pay for the clerical staff—both permanent and temporary—in the northern region are governed by general Regulations applying to the whole of the Government service. There has been no alteration in those rates since the 1st September last. The rates of salary for the medical officers have not been altered since October last, when there was a general reduction.
