HC Deb 25 July 1923 vol 167 cc482-3W

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that there are men in certain coastguard stations who have all the responsibilities of head officers of stations, but who do not receive the pay of those who are acting in such situations, the difference being about 11s. per week; and if, in the cause of discipline and the contentment of the force, he can see his way to putting men who are actually acting as chiefs of stations, with men under them, on the same footing as those who are now drawing the command pay?

Viscount WOLMER

I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answer which I gave to the hon. and gallant Member for Battersea. South (Viscount Curzon), of which I am sending him a copy.
