HC Deb 27 June 1978 vol 952 c456W
36. Mr. David Mitchell

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what representations he has received from Service men's wives about the pay and conditions of Service men.

Mr. Mulley

Over the last seven or eight weeks, I have received a number of communications from Service men's wives. In my replies I have, in general, emphasised that the firm Government commitment to restore the full, updated military salary by April 1980 is of very considerable benefit to the Armed Forces.
