HC Deb 22 November 1939 vol 353 cc1204-5
29. Mr. Parker

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether naval officers on the retired lists, voluntary employed prior to the outbreak of war, were paid a uniform allowance; and, if so, under what conditions?

Mr. Shakespeare

New scales of uniform allowance for officers voluntarily reemployed were laid down in May of this year; these rates are the same as those payable to officers called up on the outbreak of war.
