HC Deb 19 July 1977 vol 935 c539W
Mr. Churchill

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if, to his knowledge, any Service man or woman is worse off as a result of the Sixth Report of the Armed Forces Pay Review Body; and if he will give an undertaking to take steps to compensate any individual so affected.

Mr. Mulley

When all the factors covered by the Armed Forces Pay Review Body in their Sixth Report 1977—including the current tax position—are taken into account and applied to pay as a whole—including supplements—no Service man or woman is, to my knowledge, worse off in terms of overall net income as a direct result of the changes recommended.
