§ 70. Mr. Randall
asked the Secretary to the Treasury what is the total sum contained in the Supplementary Estimates for increases in salaries and wages; and what percentage this is of the total Supplementary Estimates.
§ Mr. Powell
It is not possible to give a precise answer without undue expenditure of time and labour. Very approximately the Civil Supplementary Estimates presented last July and early this month include £54½ million on account of increases in salaries and wages. This is about 44 per cent. of the total Civil Supplementary Estimates.
