HC Deb 20 November 1925 vol 188 c798W

asked the Prime Minister whether the Government proposes to take steps to remove the grievances caused by the paying for identical work different rates of pay to men serving in His Majesty's forces side by side?


His Majesty's Government have decided that the difficulties inherent in the situation must be faced. Otherwise, either reductions must be applied to all men serving in the forces, whatever their contracts, or no reductions could ever be made however strong the case for making them.
