HC Deb 25 March 1946 vol 421 c6W
38. Mr. S. Shephard

asked the Minister of Supply and of Aircraft Production if he is aware that payments to, or to dependants of, men and women serving in the Forces, manual labour only, are disallowed under his Department's instructions in Government costings, but that similar payments to salaried staff are allowable if considered reasonable; and if he will take steps to remove this anomaly.

Mr. Wilmot

This question was fully discussed with representatives of the employers in 1940 and the decision come to has been generally acceptable to industry.
