§ Mr. Henderson
asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether any payments, additional to normal rates, are made to officers and men posted in the North-East of Scotland; and if he will specify the payments by type and personnel by rank in the Official Report.
§ Mr. William Rodgers
In general, no. However, current rates of excess rent allowance payable to married personnel living in privately rented accommodation in certain parts of North-East Scotland take account of the prevailing level of rents in those areas.
