§ The Prime Minister
The Armed Forces Pay Review Body has submitted to me a supplementary report on the pay of medical and dental officers in the armed forces. It recommends increases of between 5.5 and 7.6 per cent. according to rank with effect from 1 April 1987.
These awards are derived as usual from those to civilian doctors and dentists that I announced in the House on 23 April 1987, at column 655, and the Government have decided to accept them in full.
The report has been published as Command 176 and copies are available in the Vote Office.
