§ 59. Dame Irene Ward
asked the Minister of Defence whether he is aware that the wives of serving officers are dissatisfied with present pay and allowances; that this is detrimental to the best interests of the Services and is a bar to recruitment; and if he will make a statement on future prospects for the revised pay code and give an assurance that improvement will be on a realistic basis.
§ Mr. Selwyn Lloyd
I would refer my hon. Friend to the statement I made on 2nd November in the course of the debate on National Service.
