HC Deb 21 February 1940 vol 357 c1362W
Miss Wilkinson

asked the Home Secretary whether he has considered a communication from the borough of Jarrow regarding the wages of Civil Defence personnel; and whether he has any statement to make on the matter?

Sir J. Anderson

I have carefully considered the representations that have been made to me, but I am not prepared at this juncture to authorise any general increase in the existing standard rates of remuneration of whole-time personnel in the Civil Defence services
