§ 21. Captain Strickland
asked the Secretary of State for Air what is the increased deduction made from a childless airman's daily rate of pay of over 7s. but not exceeding 8s., under the new scheme, and how much extra allowance is paid to the wife.
§ Sir A. Sinclair
The rate of qualifying allotment for airmen on rates of pay ranging from 7s. to 8s. a day is being increased from 1s. to 1s. 6d. a day. This will result in a corresponding increase of 3s. 6d. a week in the total amount of family allowance and qualifying allotment to be paid to the childless wives of such airmen.
