HC Deb 04 February 1970 vol 795 c408
18. Mr. Wiggins

asked the Secretary of State for Defence when he will make a special investigation into the conditions of pay, work and rewards for Territorial and Army Volunteer Reserve officers on consolidated rates of pay.

Mr. Richard

No, Sir. I see no need for a special investigation. The rates of pay of these officers will be reviewed following the introduction of the new Service pay code. Any adjustment to these rates will take effect from 1st April, 1970.

Mr. Wiggin

Will the Minister bear in mind that very important function of these people in the administration of TAVR and consult commanding officers of these units to see whether their opinions coincide with his?

Mr. Richard

I will certainly bear in mind fully the considerations in the hon. Member's supplementary question.
