asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works and Planning whether he will state the salary paid and the motor-car allowance per mile granted to Mrs. Giles, the officer in the North West Region of his Department engaged in the collection of railings and scrap metal?

While thanking the Minister for his reply, may I ask whether the salary and motor car allowance are the same as for other officers throughout the country?
