HC Deb 25 March 1930 vol 237 c303W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air on what grounds a reduction has been made in the Colonial allowance for officers and men serving in the Sudan; and whether the cost of living in the Sudan and comparative figures for Egypt, Iraq, Aden, etc., were taken into consideration before this decision was reached?


The rates, which are subject to periodical revision, were reduced on the basis of a comparison of the cost-of-living in the Sudan with the cost-of-living in this country.
