HC Deb 06 March 1924 vol 170 c1618W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that the grade of woman pension officer on a salary scale of £100–£250 has had no outlet for promotion provided on reorganisation; that the Treasury stated in July, 1922, that the question of supervising posts for this grade was under consideration, but that no such posts had been allocated; and whether there is any other grade of officers requiring such high educational qualifications and performing such responsible duties who have no prospects of reaching beyond the maximum salary of £250?


The grade of woman pension officer was established on a permanent basis only two years ago, as part of a general reorganisation of the Customs and Excise Service, and the question of creating posts of woman supervisor was deferred until the process of reorganisation had advanced sufficiently to justify their creation. This time has not yet arrived, and for the present surveyors of Customs and Excise are continuing to supervise the work of pension officers of both sexes.
