HC Deb 24 October 1939 vol 352 c1245W
Mr. Molson

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether in billeting civil servants at the rate of 21s. a week to include two meat meals every day, he took into consideration the coming operation of rationing, and the anticipated higher cost of living which has risen by 10 per cent. in one month; and, if not, whether he proposes to do so?

Captain Crookshank

The rate in question was fixed after a careful consideration of all the relevant factors and I am satisfied that it does not require revision.
