§ Mr. SALTER
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether the dependants of Reservists employed at the Royal Aircraft Factory and called up for service are to receive half wages in addition to the Army separation allowance; and, if so, why no payment has yet been made?
Reservists employed at the Royal Aircraft Factory and called up for service are being treated on the same lines as all other Government employés. They are entitled to civil pay less Army or Navy pay, calculated at 7s., and less separation allowance. Payment has been made to the dependants nominated by Reservists. I have ascertained that payment has already been made on these lines in the majority of cases, but there may be exceptional cases where, owing to lack of information, payment is still outstanding. If the hon. Member has any specific case in mind, I will have inquiries made.
