§ Mr. G. WHITE
asked the Secretary of State for War the number of civilian employés at the War Office, including temporary employés, on 1st April, 1914, and at the present time and the comparative amounts in salaries, etc., of this personnel; and how much in the difference in the latter figure can be attributed to the difference in the cost of living?
§ Major ATTLEE
In reply to the first part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the figures which my right hon. Friend gave him on the 11th instant. As regards the remainder of the question, my right hon. Friend proposes to deal with this subject in his statement on the Army Estimates to-day.
