HC Deb 12 February 1930 vol 235 cc414-5
68. Captain BALFOUR

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether any reductions have recently been made in the scale of subsistence allowances payable to Royal Air Force officers while temporarily away on duty from their stations; and, if so, the amount of such reductions and the reasons which have caused this alteration in the scale of payments?

Existing Scales.
Nightly rate. Daily rate.
First 8 Nights. After 8 Nights. When rationed and accommodated. 5–9 hours. Over 9 hours.
Rate 1. Rate 2. Rate 3. Rate 4. Rate 5.
s. d. s. d. s. d. s. d. s. d.
Officers of rank of Group Captain and upwards. 30 0 15 0 7 0 6 0 15 0
Other officers 22 6 12 6 5 0 4 0 11 6

The revised rates will not be subject to deduction of ration allowance, at present 1s. 7d. a day, as are certain of the present rates. It may be added that the revision of subsistence allowances forms part of a wider revision of allowances as a whole and of travelling concessions, the effect of which is, in general, favourable to the officers concerned.
