HC Deb 30 January 1940 vol 356 cc981-2W
Mr. Windsor

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he will give close consideration to the present inadequacy of the payments for naval officers and men billeted upon victualling houses, having regard to the services which have to be provided, with a view to revising the scales of payments?

Mr. Shakespeare

Billeting rates are the same for all three Services, and I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which was given on 25th January by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for War to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Rochester (Captain Plugge).
