HC Deb 07 May 1952 vol 500 cc45-6W
Mr. Lewis

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury the average salary increase granted to the 8,504 established civil servants in receipt of salaries of £1,000 per annum since 1946 to the latest convenient date.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

These civil servants comprise a very large number of different grades each with different rates of salary. The calculation of the average increase could not be undertaken without a disproportionate expenditure of time and labour and its result would be quite meaningless. If the hon. Member will let me know which particular grade he has in mind I will let him have details of the actual increases received.
