HC Deb 14 June 1944 vol 400 c1962
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.
