HC Deb 04 August 1942 vol 382 c866W
Professor Savory

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that a second lieutenant in Offlag VI B is only receiving an equivalent in German money of £5 sterling per month; and how much German officers of equivalent rank who are prisoners of war in this country are paid per month?

Sir J. Grigg

A second lieutenant in Germany gets 72 reichsmarks a month. The corresponding German officer in British hands gets £4 16s.
