HC Deb 11 February 1946 vol 419 c25W
Mr. Teeling

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the official statement published by the French Ministry of Information on 17th January, that the cost of living has gone up by 703 per cent. since 1939 for basic commodities and the black market price by 3,117 per cent., he is satisfied that the present pay and allowances of British clerks, typists, etc., serving in the British Embassy and Consular offices in France is sufficient; and by how much has it gone up since 1939.

Mr. McNeil

The allowances of the staff of the British Embassy in Paris and of Consular Offices in France are at present under review.
