§ 13. Viscount Hinchingbrooke
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware of the anomaly that exists in the rates of pay to officers and non-commissioned officers of the Army Educational Corps whereby officers get lower and non commissioned officers higher rates than do the comparable ranks in other corps; and whether he will raise the rates of pay to Army Educational Corps officers?
§ The Secretary of State for War (Sir James Grigg)
Officers of the Army Educational Corps are paid at rates which are more favourable for captains and less favourable for subalterns than those of other non-technical arms. The pay of non-commissioned officers of the Army Educational Corps (except probationers) is equivalent to that of tradesmen in other arms. The question of bringing the rates of pay of Army Educational Corps officers into line with those of other non-technical arms is now being examined.
