HC Deb 07 December 1951 vol 494 c340W
Mr. D. Jones

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether, having regard to the substantial increases in wage rates since 1948, he will give consideration to introducing legislation to amend the Local Government Act, 1948, so as to increase by 25 per cent. the amount permitted to be paid to wage earners who have to sacrifice wages to undertake local government work for which they have been appointed by their fellow members, or meetings of the local authority, to attend which they have to lose time.

Mr. H. Macmillan
