HC Deb 12 February 1946 vol 419 c48W
Mr. Garry Allighan

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, under the postwar code of pay, the wives of all married soldiers will be eligible for marriage allowance on the present basis.

Mr. Lawson

I would refer my hon. Friend to the recent White Paper on the Post-War Code of Pay and Allowances, where full details are given. The relevant paragraphs of the White Paper are 21-27 and 51 (b). Paragraph 26 reads as follows:

Men of the age of 21 and over will be eligible for marriage allowance. Special arrangements will apply to married men below this age.
