§ 68. Mr. Driberg
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what action he is taking to raise the pay and allowances of ratings taking part in the mixed-manned force experiment so that they receive roughly the same amount as is paid to men from other national contingents doing the same work.
§ Mr. Hay
As my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Defence stated on 15th July in reply to a Question by the hon. Member for Leeds, East (Mr. Healey) the experiment with the mixed-manned force at sea has only just started. The progress of the experiment, including any problems arising in respect of pay, will be closely watched.
