HC Deb 22 February 1955 vol 537 c131W
85. Mr. Willey

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what he estimates would be the cost of providing full equal pay to women civil servants aged 57 years, and older.

Mr. R. A. Butler

The extra cost of giving equal pay to this category at once instead of gradually over a period would be about £1¼ million in the first year, and about £4½ million over the whole period.
