HC Deb 10 December 1941 vol 376 c1540W
Sir G. Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware that officers in the Royal Air Force, wounded in action before February 1941, received, during their incapacity, the pay of their acting rank, but are now being called upon to repay the excess over the pay appropriate to their substantive rank during such incapacity; and whether, in view of the great services of these men, and as many of these officers have only limited financial resources, he will issue instructions that the excess need not be paid back or not until after the war and by easy instalments?

Captain Balfour

Inquiries are being made into this matter and I will communicate with my hon. Friend in due course.
