§ The Under-Secretary of State for Defence for the Royal Navy (Mr. Maurice Foley)
The new wages structure for Government workers will cover all grades and operate from the same date.
§ Dame Joan Vickers
When the hon. Gentleman says "all grades", will he tell us if this includes the victualling yards and the armament depôts as well?
§ Mr. Hamling
Would the hon. Gentleman tell the House what proportion of the Defence Estimates is taken up by wages and salaries, and what offers of 491 support he has had from his right hon. and hon. Friends for increases in the Defence Estimates to take account of increased wages?
