HC Deb 01 January 1913 vol 46 cc372-3W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the officers and men allocated for service under the Royal Naval Airship Section are paid according to the number of ascensions made instead of by daily allowance; and, if so, what were the considerations upon which this discrimination between members of the aeroplane corps and of the airship section was based?


Both in the Military and Naval Airship Sections the officers and men are entitled to flying pay under existing rules for days of ascent only, unless they are qualified aeroplane fliers. I may add that the whole matter is at present under the consideration of the Board of Admiralty.
