HC Deb 25 January 1955 vol 536 cc2-3W
43. Mr. Swingler

asked the Secretary of State for War to make a statement on the improvements in the Army's pay code since September, 1950, giving his estimates of the proportions of officers, noncommissioned officers, and men who have benefited from these improvements.

Mr. F. Maclean

The principal increases in Army pay since September, 1950, can be found in Cmd. Paper 9088. Details of the pay and allowances of officers and other ranks are set out each year in the appendices to Army Estimates and the rates from year to year can thus be compared. The numbers of officers and other ranks who have benefited by the various changes are not available and I do not think that the labour of obtaining them would be justified.
