§ 41. Mr. Ian Harvey
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how the rates of pay, conditions of service and accommodation of members of the staffs at the Civil Defence Staff 228W College and Training Establishment compare with those of the members of the staffs at the Staff College, Camberley, and equivalent War Office training establishments.
§ Major Lloyd-George
I assume that my hon. Friend has in mind the Commandant and instructors at the Civil Defence Staff College and not all members of the staff, who fall within thirty-four grades. I am unable to draw the comparison for which he asks because the commandants and instructors at the Civil Defence Staff College and other training establishments are civil servants whereas the senior posts at the Staff College at Camberley, and at comparable War Office training establishments, are held by serving officers on Service rates of pay. In any event it is not easy to draw an exact comparison between the responsibilities of the staffs of the different institutions.
