Mr. Aiken Mr. Aiken
 Mr. Aiken: Figures as asked for in the second part of the question showing the costs of salaries, wages and allowances of civil servants for each of the years previous to those referred to in the first part of the question are not available, as the figures from the  census of staff show only the position as on the first working day of January in each year. Particulars as on that date for the years mentioned (except 1947, for which figures are not yet available) are as follows:—
The figures given in the above statement do not include numbers or costs of (a) persons employed on relief schemes; (b) persons employed on a fee basis; and (c) artisans, labourers, etc., employed on schemes or works of a temporary nature (other than relief schemes), who are not regarded as civil servants.
