§ Lieut.-Commander Hutchison
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT a comparative table showing the basic rates of pay per day of colonels, lieutenant-colonels, majors, captains and lieutenants, in the R.A.M.C., Dental and Veterinary Corps and A.E.C. and the corresponding rates of pay for Chaplains, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th class.
§ Sir J. Grigg
The following is the Table: 1283W The above excludes any normal increments of the current pay code and the special War Service Increments.
The above rates are those which were in force in peace, except that in the case of the A.E.C. the rate for Second Lieutenant has been increased from 10s. 0d. to 11s. 0d., and for Lieutenant from 11s. 10d. to 135. 0d.; and in the case of the R.A.Ch.D. the temporary Chaplain 4th Class has been given an increment to 18s. 2d. after three years' service.
I would also refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply I gave to-day to the hon. and gallant Member for Kincardine and Western (Lieut.-Colonel Thornton-Kemsley).
