HC Deb 31 May 1945 vol 411 c385W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what amount was paid per night to civil servants for fire watching.

Mr. Peake

Civil servants who performed fire guard duties outside their working hours were eligible for reimbursement of additional travelling expenses incurred in consequence of such duty and for the payment of subsistence allowance at the rates prescribed for business premises generally in Article 25 of the Fire Guard (Business and Government Premises) Order, 1943 (S.R. & 0. 1943, No. 1044), of which I am sending my hon. Friend a copy.
