HC Deb 11 June 1934 vol 290 c1354W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury the individual amounts that the Members of the Goverment will receive when the restoration of salary cuts are made?


The individual amounts in question will be one-half in each case of the emergency reductions consequent on the crisis in the autumn of 1931. These reductions were, for Ministers other than the Law Officers of the Crown:

  1. (i) on salaries of £5,000 a year or more, 20 per cent.;
  2. (ii) on salaries of £2,000 a year or more but less than £5,000 a year, 15 per cent.;
  3. (iii) on salaries of less than £2,000 a year, 10 per cent.

In the case of the Law Officers of the Crown the reductions were at the rate of £5,000 a year for the Attorney-General and £4,000 a year for the Solicitor-General.
