HC Deb 07 March 1924 vol 170 c1798W

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will give the rates of pay in the French Army, together with the comparable rates in the British Army?


The statement below shows the pay and allowances of typical ranks in the British and French Armies. The hon. Member will appreciate, however, that the conditions of service in the two armies are not really comparable, as the British Army is recruited on a voluntary basis.
