§ Mr. Robert C. Brown
The Armed Forces Pay Review Body recommended that in addition to their normal pay, which already includes a factor for work during unsocial hours, members of Her Majesty's Armed Forces serving in Northern Ireland receive an additional payment in recognition of the abnormal conditions of work obtaining there. This recommendation was accepted in May 1974, and the payments were introduced with effect from 1st April 1974. Members of Her Majesty's Armed Forces serving in Northern Ireland also receive a number of concessions which are of financial benefit or which specially improve the quality of life there. I consider the rates of pay and allowances to be satisfactory.
