§ Mr. A. Lewis
asked the Under Secretary of State for Air if he is aware of the dissatisfaction of R.A.F. personnel, North Front, Gibraltar over the fact that the ranks of sergeant and above receive a hardship allowance called Colonial Pay, which is not paid to other ranks; and if he will take steps to end this discrimination.
§ Mr. Strachey
I am not aware that the issue of Colonial allowance, which is paid on similar conditions for the three Services, has been the cause of any general dissatisfaction among members of the R.A.F. at Gibraltar.
