HC Deb 03 August 1944 vol 402 cc1616-7W
Mrs. Tate

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of the fact that the pay of Civil Defence workers is based on that of a private in the Armed Forces, married with one child, and that such private received 13s. 6d. increase in basic allowances on 1st May, 1944, he can assure the House that a similar adjustment will be made in the case of Civil Defence personnel.

Mr. H. Morrison

An application for an increase of pay is being discussed by the Civil Defence Services Joint Consultative Committee, on which the Government Departments and the Trade Unions concerned in Civil Defence are represented.
