asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury how many Civil Service officers and staff, in the £1,000 per annum class in 1946, have not had an increase in their salaries since that date; and how many of these officers have to meet the cost of their postage, stationery, secretarial assistance, telephones, travel and living away from home expenses, and other expenses necessarily incurred in carrying out their duties to the State from their salaries.

As I told the hon. Member on 29th January, 1953, all salary scales which in 1946 included £1,000 within their range have since been increased, and no civil servant normally has to meet from his salary the expenses mentioned.
