HC Deb 25 July 1929 vol 230 c1503W

asked the Secretary of State for War what proportion of the officers in the Royal Artillery, infantry of the line, and other branches of the Regular Army receive pay estimated to be sufficient to meet the total normal expenses commensurate with their rank?


The rates of pay of all officers in all branches of the Service were fixed, both in the 1919 revision and again in the 1925 revision, after very careful consideration, at such figures as it was estimated would enable an officer without any private means who practised due economy to live on his pay while meeting the normal expenses of his rank. This is still the position.
