HC Deb 30 November 1966 vol 737 cc110-1W
67. Sir T. Beamish

asked the Secretary of State for Defence on what grounds he decided that the assurance in paragraph 4 of Command Paper No. 2903 that he would publish separately revised rates of pay for Service medical and dental officers, which would be effective from 1st April, 1966, will not be honoured; and if he is aware of the concern that this has caused.

Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

On 20th July a new situation arose, as a result of which many prospective pay increases had to be deferred; I am aware of the concern of these officers.

The matter will be dealt with in the framework of the White Paper on "Prices and Incomes Standstill; Period of Severe Restraint" (Command 3150).
