§ 36. Mr. David Mitchell
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what representations he has received from Service men's wives about the pay and conditions of Service men.
§ Mr. Mulley
Over the last seven or eight weeks, I have received a number of communications from Service men's wives. In my replies I have, in general, emphasised that the firm Government commitment to restore the full, updated military salary by April 1980 is of very considerable benefit to the Armed Forces.
