§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for Defence to what extent the Government's wages and salary standstill will apply to other ranks and officers in the Forces; and whether it will also apply to their annual and periodical increases.
§ Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu
Of course the policy announced in Command 3073 applies to the Forces to the full extent. The White Paper states that it is not intended to apply the standstill to the normal arrangements for increasing pay either with age or by regular increments of specified amounts within a predetermined range or scale.
