HC Deb 21 March 1944 vol 398 cc646-7
8. Major Nield

asked the Secretary of State for War, if, in view of the increase in the cost of living, he will now consider the grant of pre-natal allowances to the wives of junior officers, as in the case of the wives of other ranks.

Sir J. Grigg

This question will no doubt be raised in the discussions now proceeding on Service pay and allowances.

Major Nield

Would the Minister say how such anomalies are to be brought to the notice of that committee?

Sir J. Grigg

Is not the hon. and gallant Member one of the panel which is discussing the matter?—[HON. MEMBERS: "No."]

18. Captain Longhurst

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will consider instituting a uniform rate of pay for cadets, commensurate with their standing and responsibilities as future officers.

Sir J. Grigg

This question is now under consideration.
