HC Deb 10 May 1923 vol 163 c2570
62. Lieut.-Colonel POWNALL

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he will take steps to compare from time to time the scale of pay and emoluments paid to members of the Royal Air Force with those paid to employés with similar duties in the large civilian air-transport services?


The differences in the organisation of a fighting service and a civilian transport company make it difficult to find classes or grades of personnel whose duties can fairly be described as similar. I am having the point investigated, but I can hold out no hope of any useful comparison resulting.
