HC Deb 24 March 1936 vol 310 c1030

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will take steps to remove the pay anomaly existing against those persons who joined the Army Reserve between September, 1931, and June, 1934, who receive remuneration of 9d. per day, whilst those who joined the Army before the earlier date or after the later one now receive pay of 1s. per day?


I think the hon. Member is under some misapprehension in regard to this matter. The present daily rates of pay of Army Reservists who enlisted into the Army on or before 30th September, 1931, are: Section A, is. 6d.; Section B or D, 1s. Men enlisting into the Army after 30th September, 1931, are eligible for the following rates only on transfer to, enlistment into, or re-engagement for, the Army Reserve: Section A, 1s. 3d.; Section B or D, 9d.
