§ Rear-Admiral ADAIR
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether further consideration has been given to the question of charging officers of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines the service rate of Income Tax only, or, alternatively, increasing the rates of pay so as to meet the burden of the full rate of Income Tax as recommended in the Jerram and Halsey Committee's Reports?
§ Sir J. CRAIG
The Admiralty decision that civil rates of Income Tax should be applicable to the Royal Navy and Royal Marines remains in force. The pay of officers and men continues to receive the close attention of the Board.
