HC Deb 23 November 1955 vol 546 c116W
59. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Minister of Defence whether he is aware that the wives of serving officers are dissatisfied with present pay and allowances; that this is detrimental to the best interests of the Services and is a bar to recruitment; and if he will make a statement on future prospects for the revised pay code and give an assurance that improvement will be on a realistic basis.

Mr. Selwyn Lloyd

I would refer my hon. Friend to the statement I made on 2nd November in the course of the debate on National Service.
