HC Deb 24 May 1977 vol 932 c391W
29. Mr. Mates

asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he can now make a further statement concerning the special allowance payable to Service men in Northern Ireland.

Mr. Mulley

I have nothing to add today to what my hon. Friend the Undersecretary of State for Defence for the Army said on 19th April, when he undertook, in response to representations from all parts of the House, to conduct an urgent review of the problems of pay and conditions for the Services in Northern Ireland. This work is well advanced, and I will make a statement as soon as possible.
