§ Colonel VAUGHAN-MORGAN
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air what was the inclusive salary previously paid to the temporary official acting as personal assistant to the Air Member for Supply and Research; what is the amount, including basic salary and bonus, being paid to a permanent official now doing the same work; and whether he will explain what economy, if any, was effected by the change?
§ Mr. LEACH
The answer to the first part of the question is, £585 per annum; and to the second part, £595 7s. per annum. As regards the last part of the question, the termination of the appointment of the former official, who had no ex-service qualifications, was a measure of substitution and was in pursuance of the recommendations of Lord Lytton's Committee.
