asked the Prime Minister whether, in order to recognise the public spirit of those men and women who volunteered for service with the Armed Forces at the outbreak and during the early months of the war, and thus sacrificed the many advantages enjoyed by civilian workers, he will consider making the post-war credits scheme, recently announced, retrospective, so that in each case the 6d. per day will be credited to the individual from the date of his or her enlistment?
Does not the Minister appreciate the unfairness of the position as between men who volunteered in September, 1939, and gave up their good wages and those who have not volunteered yet who are called up? Cannot something be done to remedy the injustice of that position?
Major Vyvyan Adams:
Is not the Minister aware that, in comparison with the rewards enjoyed by workers in industry, the recent increases to the lower ranks of the Services and the junior officers are entirely inadequate?
