HC Deb 27 May 1941 vol 371 cc1726-7W
Mr. Bellenger

asked the Secretary of State for War whether men serving in bomb disposal units of the Royal Engineers are entitled to extra pay, either as tradesmen or by virtue of any other qualification?

Captain Margesson

Members of bomb disposal units are not entitled to extra pay as such, but men mustered as tradesmen to fill vacancies in the establishment are, of course, paid at tradesmen's rates as in other units. As I stated in my answer to my hon. Friend on nth March, members of bomb disposal units receive two extra free travel warrants a year for leave journeys.
