HC Deb 21 January 1941 vol 368 cc39-40W
Mr. W. Joseph Stewart

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he will consider placing temporary civil servants of the lower grades on the wage scales applicable to corresponding permanent civil servants, recruiting temporaries at points in the wage scales appropriate to their qualifications and granting temporaries the appropriate annual increments of pay?

Captain Crookshank

Different considerations apply to the pay of staff engaged for a short period. The rates of pay of temporary staff in the lower grades were, in the main, fixed in agreement with the staff associations concerned.
