§ Mr. C. Smith
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he can analyse further the figure for salaries as an element in the national income given in Table 4 of Command Paper No. 7371; and in particular whether he can state the element in the total accounted for by the salaries of Civil Servants as distributive workers in 1938 and 1947.
§ Mr. Glenvil Hall
The estimate of salaries given in Cmd. 7371 is a global estimate based largely on assessments to Income Tax under Schedule E; it is impossible in the present state of knowledge to allocate it between particular industries or occupations. I do not fully understand what is meant by the second part of the hon. Member's Question: if he will let me know more precisely what he has in mind, I will look into the matter.
