§ Mr. A. Lewis
asked the Minister of Defence whether he will take steps to 190W increase the pay, allowances and pensions of the Services.
§ Mr. Thorneycroft
The biennial review of Service pay and pensions is taking place in accordance with the recommendations of the Grigg Committee. Until it is completed I am not in a position to make any further statement. Allowances are reviewed from time to time, as necessary.
