HC Deb 25 April 1929 vol 227 c1082W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether any decision has yet been reached with regard to raising the rates which may be compulsorily deducted from the pay of each grade of naval rating for the maintenance of his wife?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

It is the Admiralty intention to assimilate the rates of deductions from naval pay for this purpose to those now authorised by the Army and Air Force Annual Bill passed this Session; but this will involve legislation in the new Parliament.
