HC Deb 10 April 1946 vol 421 c310W
Sir R. Glyn

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if minesweepers of the British Pacific Fleet, engaged in actual sweeping, receive the same allowance that is paid to minesweepers operating in home waters.

Mr. Dugdale:

Officers and men of the British Pacific Fleet engaged on mine sweeping duties are still in receipt of Japanese Campaign Pay, which covers the liability to engage in warlike operations. They do not, therefore, receive the extra pay which for the present is being issued for operational minesweeping in other waters.
