HC Deb 28 July 1939 vol 350 c1827W
Mr. Groves

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware of the scales of salaries appertaining (to stores and accounts officers in the Air Ministry works directorate; and, in view of the additional work due to expansion which increases the already long working hours without any additional pay being given in compensation, he will consider raising the salary of £475 to a figure commensurate with such responsibilities?

Sir K. Wood

The present scale of £475–£575 was agreed to less than two years ago in place of the previous scale of £456–£515, and I regret that I do not feel justified in re-opening the matter at the present time.
