HC Deb 02 December 1980 vol 995 c113W
32. Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on future increases in the pay of the Armed Forces; and whether they will be restricted to six per cent per annum

Mr. Pym

The Government will continue to fulfill their commitment to maintain Forces' pay at the levels of their civilian counterparts. The actual increase to be awarded next year will depend upon the recommendations of the Review Body on Armed Forces Pay,
