§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will publish in the Official Report as much detailed information as may be readily available 677W showing to what extent since October 1979 public servants generally of all classifications, including hon. Members, have been paid in accordance with, below, or above the various Government cash limits, or recommendations or requests on salary increase limits; how many were within each stated group; what were the payments made in excess or below the recommended amounts; and what has been the total annual cost of such increases per stated group of employees.
§ Mr. Brittan
I regret that in the time available it has not been possible to provide the information requested. I shall write to the hon. Member.
