HC Deb 23 June 1971 vol 819 cc299-300W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he will give details of the effects of the rise in the cost of living and percentage rises in salaries from 1964 to 18th June, 1971, of civil servants within the Department of Employment, who were then on a salary scale of £3,250 per annum.

Mr. Bryant

Insufficient information is available about the pattern of expenditure of civil servants on a salary of £3,250 per annum in 1964 to permit the calculation of the rise in the cost of maintaining their standard of living.
