HC Deb 09 March 1925 vol 181 cc950-1W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware that officers and ratings serving in vessels employed in certain areas may be paid climate pay during certain periods at the following rates: commissioned and commissioned warrant officers 3s. a day, warrant and subordinate officers 1s. a day, and the rest of the ship's company 6d. a day; and whether, seeing that all are alike subject to the same health risks, he can see his way to grant to all the sum of 3s. a day climate pay?


I am aware of the different rates referred to, but I consider that it is only fair that allowances should vary in some proportion to the rank and status of the individual.
