HC Deb 22 July 1964 vol 699 c93W
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.
