HC Deb 20 November 1946 vol 430 c106W
29. Mr. Walker-Smith

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware that the present foreign service allowance and lodging allowance for salaried members of the Air Ministry Directorate of Works in Malta is insufficient to maintain a reasonable standard of living; and what increases he proposes to make.

Mr. de Freitas

The question of an increase is now being discussed with the other Departments concerned and with the staff side of the Departmental Whitley Council. I shall let the hon. Member know the outcome of these discussions.
