HC Deb 12 May 1958 vol 588 c8W
Mr. Malcolm MacPherson

asked the Minister of Supply what rates of payment he makes to employees of his Department while they are attending college or university as part of a sandwich course.

Mr. Aubrey Jones

The payment made to non-industrial employees of the Ministry attending sandwich courses is the normal salary appropriate to rank and age. Apprentices receive rates of pay negotiated with the trades unions and, in certain circumstances, an allowance if they have to live away from home. In addition, tuition and examination fees and travelling expenses are paid by the Ministry.
