HC Deb 05 August 1941 vol 373 c1794W
Mr. Liddall

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he will arrange for issue with, or on the pay envelopes of, the weekly salaries of lower grade civil servants particulars of gross and net wages and bonus, and all deductions that have been made there from, and for what purposes, so that present uncertainties may be removed; and that recipients may know precisely what has been accounted for in their varying receipts?

Captain Crookshank

As I indicated in my reply to my hon. Friend on the 15th July, such particulars are normally available at the pay desk at the time of payment. To record the details on each envelope would involve heavy additional work, and I could not agree that this should be undertaken in present circumstances.
