HL Deb 15 March 2001 vol 623 cc103-4WA
Earl Attlee

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether PAY 2000 will increase or decrease the Army's expenditure on pay and allowance. [HL1027]

Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean

The implementation of PAY 2000 will increase the Army's expenditure on pay by £29 million in the financial year 2001–2002. PAY 2000 will have no effect on expenditure on allowances. The move to PAY 2000 is fully supported by the Armed Forces Pay Review Body.
