HC Deb 28 October 1952 vol 505 c197W
89. Sir W. Darling

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why £7,000 is paid towards the cost of administration of Civil Service Benevolent Fund.

Mr. R. A. Butler

Many good employers contribute to benevolent schemes for their staff and I think it entirely reasonable that the Exchequer should make this contribution to a fund to which civil servants themselves subscribe over £100,000 a year.
