HC Deb 15 May 1935 vol 301 cc1715-6W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty for what reason the system of calculating the wages of industrial civil servants by adding bonus to basic pay is still continued; and

defence considerations. As regards these latter, the experience of other nations to date suggests that expenditure on civil aviation is neither the most economical nor the most effective means for a rapid strengthening of military air resources at the present stage of development.
