HC Deb 06 March 1946 vol 420 cc308-9
5. Mr. William Shepherd

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he is now able to arrange for British air men in Paris the same financial advantages which accrue to U.S. servicemen.

Mr. Strachey

So far as I know, the only special financial advantage for members of the United States forces in France is now the refund of tax on articles which they buy to send out of the country. This concession now applies to members of the British Forces as well. The earlier grant of francs to the American forces was stopped on 26th December last, when the franc was devalued.
