HC Deb 23 May 1978 vol 950 c465W
50. Mr. Viggers

asked the Secretary of State for Defence when he expects to announce the result of his current review of local overseas allowances for members of Her Majesty's Armed Forces.

Mr. Mulley

I announced on 10th October 1977 that, subject only to exchange rate adjustments, local overseas allowance rates would not be altered for 12 months. The normal review mechanism was therefore suspended.
