HC Deb 23 June 1927 vol 207 c2068W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware that leading ratings in some branches receive a triennial increase in pay, while in other branches this increase is not granted; and whether he will take stews to secure uniform treatment For all leading ratings?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

it is the case that a triennial increase of pay is not given to all leading rates, but I am afraid that the question of granting it to all leading rates cannot be considered in present circumstances.
